Beatrix Potter is legendary for her animal-centric children’s books, which she both wrote and illustrated. Fan interest, then, should be piqued at the recent discovery of several non-children themed drawings.

Four of Potter’s lost illustrations have been uncovered in Suffolk, at a National Trust property, reports The Guardian. The works capture the author’s experiences at Melford Hall, a place that Potter visited often from 1899 to 1938 and was owned by relatives.

Josephine Waters, house manager of Melford Hall, is responsible for the discovery of two drawings. Another was announced by Richard Hyde Parker, 12th baronet, who lives in Melford Hall. The final illustration was found by Jean, Hyde Parker’s wife.

The National Trust will publicly display Potter’s lost artwork from July 13th through October. You can view some of the images at The Guardian website.

Are there any children’s illustrators who you grew up with and still hold in high regard? Beatrix Potter is definitely one of mine!

Omg I Finally Got Helped  !! I'm so excited right now, I just have to share my testimony on this Forum.. The feeling of being loved takes away so much burden from our shoulders. I had all this but I made a big mistake when I cheated on my wife with another woman  and my wife left me for over 4 months after she found out..  I was lonely, sad and devastated. Luckily I was directed to a very powerful spell caster Dr Emu who helped me cast a spell of reconciliation on our Relationship and he brought back my wife and now she loves me far more than ever.. I'm so happy with life now. Thank you so much Dr Emu, kindly Contact  Dr Emu Today and get any kind of help you want.. Via Email emutemple@gmail.com  or Call/WhatsApp cell number  +2347012841542

My name is Tom Peacock from USA, I want to say thank you to Dr Emu for the good thing he has done for me, Though am not sure if this is the best forum to show my joy and happiness for what he has done for me but i can't hide my happiness and my joy so i have to share it with people, my marriage got crashed about two years ago and i tried all i could within my power but to no avail. I saw a post and testimonial about the good things Dr Emu has been doing so I decided to give it a try. though he is always a busy man but when he responded back to my email, he gave me 48 hours for my marriage to be restored really just like he said my marriage was restored since then I am happy and i am living happily i am so grateful to Dr Emu you can always email him here: {emutemple@gmail.com} or WhatsApp: {+2347012841542}
