Beatrix Potter

The Tale of Squirrel Nutkin

(via a collection of senses.)

Squirrel Nutkin is apparently as excited about the typography on this book as I am!

Beatrix Potter has a special spot in my heart. My baby book was Peter Rabbit themed, and in kindergarten I memorized and recited the following over the PA system to the whole school:

Beatrix Potter was a writer. She loved animals. She wrote the tale of Peter Rabbit. Here are her friends: Flopsy, Mopsy, Cottontail, Peter, and Peter’s Mom.

TO THE WHOLE SCHOOL. Pretty big deal you guys. And, obviously, I still remember it to this day.
