Curated by collector Helen Day, this exhibition traces the Ladybird story over its ‘golden years’ – 1940 to 1975 – asking questions surrounding the books’ illustrators and artists, models, original locations, and contexts in which they were created. Visually rich and varied, the exhibition will evoke many memories of childhood, while a special section unique to Time and Tide museum illuminates special edition books, illustrated especially for the Caribbean market, thus exploring how the original books have been re-illustrated over the years to better reflect the diversity of the UK.
