Try to read it as -

"In her book illustrations, Beatrix Potter carefully coordinated them... and capitalized on .. observation and love..."

The above statement implies that the book illustrations were co-ordinated in the book illustrations which does not make sense. Hence the mention of the statement - "them cannot refer back to book illustrations as it is object of the preposition in".

However, when it is in written as, "In her book illustrations, carefully coordinating them with her narratives, Beatrix Potter" the statement "carefully coordinating them with her narratives" separately describes the book illustrations avoiding any ambiguity with the preposition "in".

I hope this makes it clear.

THEM can not refer back to book illustrations ==> eliminate A, B, E.
D need COMMA followed illustrations. ==> Also eliminate D
C has no flaw. WHICH refers back to illustration.

A for me.

IMHO, in B & C, the subject needs to come right after the modifying phrase, but doesn't.

D sounds wrong. I t makes it read that Beatrix was carefully coordinated.

Between A & E, A sounds better to me.

I think its E. Correct modifier and past verbs for parallelism
'coordinated' and 'capitalized'

(A) Beatrix Potter, in her book illustrations, carefully coordinating them with her narratives, --->illustrations is a book name cannot refer as them.

I believe, "...in her book illustrations...", illustrations refers to the pictures in the book used for clarifying or exemplifying and secondly, had it been the name, it would have started with a capital letter.
'them' refers to these illustrations which the author has carefully coordinated with her narratives, keen observation and love of the natural world.

Verb problem: coordinating and capitalized (two different tenses)
So A & B is wrong.
between C, D , E : c sounds right.

D : wrong place of modifier "In the illustrations".
Basically there are two modifiers.
1. Illustrations - which are carefully coordinated with her narratives by Beatrix
2. Beatrix potter, who capitalized on her...and (also coordinated illustrations)

You might think about mixing it. Like Beatrix coordinated illustrations and also capitalized it but its wrong.

E. again wrong place of modifier
