內容簡介


伊蒂斯‧荷頓是英國藝術家和教師,一八七一年出生於英國伯明罕,生前以童書繪者聞名,最擅長描繪植物和動物,四十歲那年與雕刻家歐尼斯特‧史密斯結婚,但婚姻生活只維持九年,一九二零年因在住家附近,現址英國皇家植物園的河岸邊採花,而不幸溺斃。

一九七七年出版商首次出版了《The Country Diary of an Edwardian Lady》,在當時引起一陣風潮,當時常有人用這本書當作禮物贈送給親友。本書有荷頓精美的畫作、隨筆和語錄,閱讀過程中,書中的喬治亞時代氛圍,似乎帶著讀者們跨越時空,回到十九世紀初的英國。

荷頓畫作的魔力和親筆書寫的文字,讓讀者自由徜徉在大自然之中,享受它帶來的獨特氣味、平靜和另人安心的力量,並且提醒著人們,只要我們願意,就可以在身邊感受到美和優雅。

A charming addition to Rizzoli’s carefully curated program of bringing classic books back into print.

This beautifully packaged facsimile of Edith Holden’s original diary is filled with a naturalist’s masterful paintings and delightful observations chronicling the English countryside throughout 1906. As one of the few true records of the time in print, the handwritten thoughts and paintings contained in The Country Diary of an Edwardian Lady transport readers to a more refined, romantic, and simpler time.

Capitalizing on the current Downton Abbey–inspired appetite for Edwardian-era ephemera, fashions, and society, this reproduction brings readers back to a time in which propriety, civility, and an appreciation for the natural world reigned. This souvenir of a bygone era serves not only as a calming touchstone, but a reminder that as long as we choose to see it, we are still surrounded by beauty and grace. Presented to retain the charm and beauty of the original volume filled with Holden’s hand-drawn 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 a lovely addition to any home’s library or side table.
