Did you know that it’s 150 years since Beatrix Potter’s birth?! It is! It’s true.
Publisher Penguin Random House are celebrating with new editions of a handful of Potter classics. Five of Penguin’s favourite fashion designers were commissioned to create these brand new, reimagined, very fashion-y covers. I think the INSIDE pages are Beatrix-business-as-usual. It’s just the covers that have had a bit of a special occasion make-over. Fancy that.
The Tale of Mrs Tiggy Winkle by Orla Kiely
The Tale of Squirrel Nutkin by Preen
The Tale of Peter Rabbit by Cats Brothers
The Tale of Tom Kitten by Rodnik Band
The Tale of Jemima Puddle-duck by House Of Holland (not pictured)
What do you think? Are you excited or outraged? I think they’d make a cute addition to anyone’s Potter collection, personally.
