The Museum of Gloucester is bringing Ladybird books to life this summer 2021, with a chance to see The Wonderful World of the Ladybird Book Artists in Gloucestershire for the first time, from Saturday 26 June until Sunday 26 September 2021.
The colourful new exhibition showcases the stories and artworks of the people who illustrated the beloved children’s books for over 30 years.
Curated by Ladybird expert, Helen Day, the nostalgic collection features books, artefacts and original artworks acquired over a 20-year period – showing the huge role these artists played in making Ladybird a success story.
As well as reliving the ‘golden years’ of the Ladybird books between 1940 and 1975, there is also an interactive make-your-own Ladybird book activity, so families can make their own memories to cherish for years to come.
