I’ve been having a bit of a catch up in the studio over the past few weeks, trying to sort out the rather chaotic mess of half-finished projects so that I’ve got room to start work on some new things. One of the many piles consisted solely of partially completed Beatrix Potter notebooks, which took quite some time to work through but I did eventually get them all finished. My current stock includes some of the Peter Rabbit ones, which usually sell out very fast so if you want one then you’d best get moving!

I’ve had a bit of a yen for Beatrix Potter recently, and my latest batch of notebooks is a bit of a dead giveaway. I bought a batch of vintage Beatrix Potter books and then wondered what to do with them…
They look pretty much like you’d expect these books to look, but I was delighted to remove the dust covers and find that the actual books were in fact green.
Far too pretty to cover up! The illustrations are, obviously, a major part of the books too so I wanted to include those in the notebooks. Thus began a fair amount of faffing to get the original pages out intact (a bit tricky as they’re glued as well as sewn in) but it was worth the effort. Each notebook includes 16 pages (32 sides) from the book out of which it was made.
I kept the binding simple and stuck with coptic binding, this also allowed me to display the original endpapers
There are twelve of these notebooks and they’d make a great gift for any lover of classic children’s literature. Click here to visit my Etsy shop.
