Ladybird by Design

Tomorrow the House of Illustration in London opens Ladybird by Design, a touring exhibition of over 120 original illustrations for Ladybird Books from De La Warr Pavilion, co-curated by Lawrence Zeegen and Jane Won. The brilliant innovation of Ladybird was to print an entire book on a single sheet of paper, which was then cut to the familiar size. Commissioning full-colour, full-page illustrations from well-known artists added enormously to Ladybird's appeal. Shown is an excellent painting from The Life of the Honey Bee (1969). The exhibition runs until 27 September, admission £7.00 adults, £5.00 silver surfers (CLICK).
