Junkshop Gems: Ladybird books


You probably remember Ladybird books from school or the local library - short, image-packed reference guides to the past, present - and even the future. Unfortunately they dated and got discarded, finding their way into junk shops and secondhand bookstores. Well, here's some good news - Ladybird books are definitely a collectable for the future.

They're great little guides - well-written, superbly illustrated and if you pick the right ones (like the ones above), fantastic period pieces. Very old copies are already worth a small fortune, but the 60s titles can be picked up for very little - and are probably the best of the lot.

We paid no more than £1 for any of the titles pictured above, yet they're great reads, great to look at and if you put them away for a few years, possibly very shrewd investments.
