Ladybird by Design by Lawrence Zeegen is a delightful trip down memory lane.
Swamped with those well loved and fondly remembered texts that were part of our upbringing.
For many of us, Ladybird books are a staple part of our early reading library and help sculpt our formative years.
The instantly recognisable fonts and bold covers are studied in more detail, with an in-depth look at the illustrative influences and design decisions behind these classic books.
From 1950 – 1970 some of our best loved titles were published and included a few which we have never seen before.
There is also an accompanying exhibition at the De La Warr pavilion.
If you’ve ever read a Ladybird book or have a recollection of one of their iconic covers, this will not fail to fill you with a warm fuzzy feeling and an overwhelming sense of nostalgia.
