UNTIL Sunday 14th April

An impressive collection of Ladybird books and artworks

Take a trip down memory lane and discover the books that defined a generation in The Wonderful World of the Ladybird Book Artists at Victoria Art Gallery in Bath. Uncover the story of the talented artists who illustrated Ladybird books during their heyday and see hundreds of books and original artworks on display in this exhibition that will delight family members of all ages from 19 January to 14 April 2024. 

Vintage Ladybird books encapsulate much of the history of 20th-century Britain. There were many different reasons for the books' phenomenal success but – as Ladybird books were essentially picture books – it was in large measure the illustrations that attracted and engaged readers.

The exhibition will explore the artists, models and real locations linked to Ladybird books, and recount the fascinating story of a little Loughborough print business that became a giant in children's publishing.
