A New Country Diary Book Launches from Rizzoli

 

Capitalizing on the current Downton Abbey–inspired appetite for Edwardian-era ephemera, fashions, and society, this reproduction brings readers back to a cultural period in which propriety, civility, and an appreciation for the natural world reigned. Presented to retain the appeal and beauty of the original volume filled with Holden’s illustrations of the English countryside’s flora and fauna through the changing seasons of the year, as well as handwritten notes, observations, and quotations, The Country Diary of an Edwardian Lady makes an enchanting addition to the library of any gardener or lover of charming book arts.


About the Author: Edith Holden (1871–1920) was born at Kings Norton, Birmingham, England, one of seven children of a Midlands paint manufacturer. The family lived in the small village of Olton in Warwickshire and it was there that she wrote and illustrated the book. After attending art school, she worked as an illustrator, and had her drawings published in several books.
