The Wonderful World of the Ladybird Book Artists

Step into the nostalgic world of Ladybird Books told through original artwork, books and objects. Ladybird Books have been a familiar fixture on children's bookshelves since the 1950s but few people are aware that they actually date back to the early days of the Second World War. Explore this unparalleled collection of books, original artwork and artefacts which show how the numerous, talented Ladybird illustrators played such as enormous role in the extraordinary success of the company in the 20th century. Tracing the interconnected work of these artists, the Ladybird story itself is recounted over its 'golden years' - 1940 to 1975. Visually rich and varied, it is a story that is sure to evoke many strong memories of childhood. Please note: this exhibition takes place at The Base, Communications Road, Greenham Business Park, Greenham, RG19 6HN.
