Victorian painters idealized English country life as a place of carefree children, charming thatched-roof cottages, and pretty flowers. Here is both the nostalgia and the truth of that world--drawn from period artwork and from the era's great writers such as Thomas Hardy. See how the cottages were built, how they looked inside, and what activities took place there, from harvesting to crafting. These beautiful watercolors offer a tantalizing view of a pastoral paradise.
