The Tale of Mrs. Tiggy Winkle

Here is a little song that is in the classic children's book, The Tale of Mrs. Tiggy Winkle by Beatrix Potter. I'm a big fan of hers, I love her animals and naturalist style drawings and paintings. She had quite an interesting life, there's a great biography on her...published in the past few years.

This is a song we sing to our kids, and they love it! I decided to write it out in a fun lettering style I found in the magazine Bound and Lettered. (a calligraphy and book arts journal, published by John Neal.... of Paper and Ink Books ...a wonderful journal but a bit pricey!) Anyway, I just found it stuffed in a magazine, and thought I should color it with my Prismacolor pencils and frame it! (I made the birth announcements for both of my kids and this lettering style was used for my son's.)

Love the lettering, and love Mrs Tiggy-Winkle too. I have the copy I had when I was small, the pictures are so beautifully drawn.
