Discover the Storybook Collection

Clara Ellie is a hand-painted print created by children’s author and illustrator Jane Ray. This design draws on the German fairy tale of ‘Snow White and Rose-Red’ – featuring charming birds soaring across a beautiful garden of briar roses.

Hand drawn in fine liner pen, Willow’s Garden was originally created by the Liberty studio in 2009. Inspired by a section of a photograph, this wild sea of daisies creates a stylised allover repeat, brimming with live and buoyancy. The dense trailing stems and leaves are a subtle nod to William Morris’s famous ‘Willow’ wallpaper.

First created in 2009 by award-winning children’s author and illustrator Lauren Child CBE, Tuesday Trees is inspired by Lauren’s illustration of the fictional character Clarice Bean. This magical print depicts fragments of archival Liberty patterns mixed with an assemblage of textured trees.

Inspired by a hand painted rose design discovered in a Liberty pattern book dating from the 1930s, Kate Ada was reimagined as an oversized contemporary floral. Striking bejewelled roses twist and tumble over a sequined mosaic style ground, creating a graphic combination of geometrics and botanicals.

Inspired by a tiny fabric fragment discovered in the Liberty archive, Pep is a bright and bold representation of stylised cherry blossom branches. When viewed from a distance, the graphic flowers seem to pop, creating an almost polka dot effect.

Lola Weisselberg features a beautiful botanical pattern – depicting a trail of daises, roses, geraniums and bell flowers inspired by vintage seed packets and samplers.

The creator of this intricately painted botanical, Jane Ray, referenced the style of Indian miniature garden paintings, this design has a wonderful feel of over-dying with tonal veils of pigment, revealing an ethereal magical forest.

A heart shaped floral check with stylised flowers, trailing leaves and tiny acorns. Inspired by a 1961 Liberty archive print, Delfie is reminiscent of wrought iron swirls and decorative garden gate panel.

Plum Dog is a hand-painted print by children’s author and illustrator Emma Chichester Clark. Originally created in 2009, this charming artwork captures a textured crayon landscape with Emma’s widely recognised dog Plum.

Originally created by the Liberty studio in 1963, this charming design was redrawn and recoloured in an array of vibrant and tonal shades. Featuring small ornamental flowers, tiny stars and scrolling tendrils, Clemmie blooms in subtle retro vibes, creating a seamless floral trail.
