These lino cut illustrations were originally for a hand printed book “Why a Hare is Not a Rabbit”.  Subsequently they were used as endpapers at the front and back of “The Hare Book” and then turned into fabric.

The images and their text in the original book were as follows:

Woodcut of a hare in a form Hares live above ground. They make dents in the grass to huddle down in, called forms.  Rabbits live in warrens they dig underground.

 

Woodcut of a hare's open eye Young hares (leverets) are born with their eyes open.  Young rabbits (kittens) are born with their eyes shut.

 

Woodcut of a leveret with fur Leverets are born fully furred but rabbit kittens are bald when they are born.

 

 

Woodcut of a hare with a full moon above Mainly nocturnal, hares live alone and only come together when they are choosing a mate.

Rabbits live in large family groups both above and below ground.

 

Woodcut of a running hare The hare is considerably larger than the rabbit and is the UK’s fastest mammal, with a top speed of 35-45mph.

Faster than a puma.  The rabbit is much slower!
