Beatrix Potter

Beatrix Potter (1866-1943) created some of the most well-known and much loved children’s characters in history and her ‘Tale of Peter Rabbit’ has sold more than 45 million copies worldwide. To this day she remains one of the biggest selling authors of all time and   published an incredible 28 books during her lifetime, 23 are most commonly ‘tales’ which she so beautifully illustrated.

A hugely talented artist/illustrator Beatrix often based her characters on real animals and pets that she had. Not everything was smooth during her primitive years of tale writing and ‘The Tale of Peter Rabbit’ was initially rejected by six publishers before she self-published her own edition – a brave and ultimately rewarding move. With the tale in the domain, publisher Frederick Warne saw, and decided to publish, Peter Rabbit. A boom in interest saw six editions produced within the first year!
