Affordable and accessible, Ladybird books hold a significant and affectionate place in the collective psyche of the nation, conjuring up, through written word and illustration, life in Britain in more innocent times.
The De La Warr Pavilion will display over 200 original illustrations that cover a selection of Ladybird books from the late 1950s to early 1970s. Focusing on those books which reflected the world in which the reader lived, the exhibition will feature selections from the People At Work series, Shopping With Mother, the Science and Nature series as well as the Well Loved Tales and Key Words series.
The exhibition will run Saturday 24th January - Sunday 10th May 2015 at the De La Warr Pavilion Bexhill on Sea, East Sussex.
