Join the curator of the upcoming exhibition Beatrix Potter: Drawn to Nature, Annemarie Bilclough, as she tells us about collector Leslie Linder, whose bequest to the museum means that the V&A now looks after the largest collection of Beatrix Potter material in the world. Learn more about Linder’s work decoding Potter, including her secret journal, which led to new discoveries about Beatrix Potter’s life and work.
