Welcome to the year of creative habits book club! Each month we read a book related to creativity. This month we chose The Art of Beatrix Potter: Sketches, Paintings, and Illustration. You can buy the book on Amazon or at your favorite bookstore.

Published to coincide with the 150th anniversary of Beatrix Potter’s birth, this magnificent collection celebrates the artist behind The Tale of Peter Rabbit and numerous other beloved children’s books. Brimming with famous images and rarely seen gems—ranging from character sketches and notebook pages to watercolor landscapes and natural history illustrations—this monograph explores Potter’s artistic process and reveals the places that inspired her timeless work. 
Organized geographically and featuring more than 200 images from the artist’s oeuvre, The Art of Beatrix Potter includes illuminating essays by Potter scholar Linda Lear, illustration historian Steven Heller, and children’s book illustrator Eleanor Taylor.

 

Join us for the discussion of the book in our Facebook group each Wednesday in September.
