Ladybird a cover story

There's sure to be something in the Ladybird: A Cover Story that takes you back to your childhood reading, especially as this new book promises '500 iconic covers from the Ladybird archives'. 


Coming out on 2 October, this book celebrates the rich history of Ladybird publishing, which started back in 1915. The many distinctive covers include the first ever Ladybird mini hardback book Bunnikins' Picnic Party and reproduces examples from some of the series so associated with the brand, and now cherised by collectors, such as Well-Loved Tales, Peter and Jane and the Garden Gang and many more. 

The book has been given the same page size as the Ladybird books themselves, and just a flick through its pages is sure to transport you back a few years. 

It's priced at £14.99 and you can order your copy from the Ladybird website
