This book was super cute. It’s basically a facsimile reproduction of an old ladybird book, and it’s beautiful. But it’s also very informative. A great way to learn.

I picked up this book after hearing a YouTuber I watch (Hannah Tay) talking about it on her channel, and I’m glad that I did. It’s basically exactly what it claims to be, a facsimile reproduction of naturalist Edith Holden’s 1906 diary, complete with her hand-drawn colour illustrations.

It makes for a fascinating read, and part of the reason for that is actually because she didn’t write that many entries. That’s a good thing, because it enables you to whizz from month to month and season to season without a problem. You can literally watch the year fly by and read it in a single sitting, and it’s a joy to behold because of that. Then there’s the fact that it’s all handwritten, which occasionally makes it hard to read but which also lends it authenticity.

All in all, this book is an artifact. It’s beautiful in its own right and makes for a great addition to your collection.
