Walls, Windows & Floors: Owls of the British Isles by Abigail Edwards

Christine Chang Hanway October 17, 2011

When J. K. Rowling created Hedwig, the ever-loyal and devoted snowy owl companion to Harry Potter, she single-handedly gave the species a complete makeover. No longer the much-feared portent of bad luck and evil; the owl (which is helpful in controlling mice, rodents, snakes, and other pests) has become revered and wise again. Determined to do her bit for the owl of her childhood fairy tales, interior stylist and illustrator Abigail Edwards has created a line of wallpaper, including Owls of the British Isles, with five percent of the profits going to The Barn Owl Centre. The papers are hand-drawn and printed at one of the few remaining traditional wallpaper printers left in the UK.
