Published by Picture Room, this series of five editions by Leanne Shapton reproduces the artist's watercolor illustrations inspired by the historic E.B. White saltwater farm. The original works were featured in The New York Times, describing the persisting beauty and charm of the homestead where White famously wrote his novel Charlotte's Web.
With her pointed and subtle acumen, Shapton picks out a single detail, choosing to illustrate the quintessential New England folk art motifs—original Moses Eaton stencils—found throughout the home.
