The Wonderful World of the Ladybird Book Artists at Victoria Art Gallery

19 January @ 10:30 am 14 April @ 5:00 pm

Ladybird Books

This colourful, family-friendly exhibition includes rare books, original artwork and artefacts, and reveals how illustrators played such an enormous role in Ladybird’s extraordinary success.

Tracing the interconnected work of these artists, the company’s story is recounted over Ladybird’s ‘golden years’ – 1940 to 1975. Visually rich and varied, the exhibition will evoke many memories of childhood.  Hundreds of Ladybird books are available for visitors to browse through and share in the gallery’s themed retro reading areas. There’s lots for children to enjoy, with a free exhibition ‘I Spy’ trail and a quirky ‘Coco the Caravan’ reading den.

Find out more about the gallery’s Thursday lunchtime tours, 1.30 – 2.00pm every week, free with an exhibition ticket.
