To mark this fantastic author’s birthday, we are celebrating all things Potter (no, not the wizard!); Beatrix Potter, the marvellous creator of Peter Rabbit and the gang.
They say “never judge a book by its cover”, and while this may be true, there are those among us that will always look at the illustrations of a children’s book before even reading the blurb. We’ve handpicked a selection of our favourite illustrators and the books which showcase their most magnificent illustrations. In a lot of cases, its the perfect illustrations that make the books truly timeless.
