Beatrix Potter: The Picture Letters, Morgan Library & Museum: NYC-ARTS | Exhibition

Beatrix Potter wrote her first stories in the form of picture letters purely for her own pleasure and the entertainment of children in her acquaintance. Years later she borrowed the letters back and published them in revised and enlarged versions now acclaimed as classics of children's literature. This exhibition brings together 20 picture letters, including the earliest surviving picture letter: the famous Peter Rabbit letter.
