Edith Blackwell Holden was born in Kings Norton, Birmingham on September 26, 1871. She was a British artist and art teacher. Her work went undiscovered for 70 years. It wasn't until 1977 that Michael Joseph published a full color facsimile edition of the beautiful book Edith had created years earlier. Edith became famous long after her death by the publication of her works which was an international success. The Country Diary of an Edwardian Lady is a reproduction of a naturalist's diary for the year 1906. Edith recorded in her own words, thoughts and paintings, along with some of her favorite poems, what she was seeing with every changing season in her hometown of Warwickshire, the British countryside and on her travels to Scotland. Edith died on March 15, 1920, still an undiscovered talent.
