Remember the classic Ladybird books for kids? They offered an insight into how the world worked for curious young minds. Now they are back, only this time the Ladybird Books return as guides for grown-ups.
Not just any old maps, these midcentury-inspired You Are Here and May We Help You? pocket-sized maps add a vintage twist, as well as an interesting twist in content.
Both feature illustration by Michael Newhouse, A3 folded to A6 and litho printed on recycled paper by Herb Lester Associates of London.
You Are Here (pictured over the page) pinpoints cool places to meet, chosen for their charm, for their convenience or simply because the compilers love them. May We Help You? focuses on 'London’s most useful suppliers' – sources for products and services ranging from rubber tubing to 18th-century lamps, Super 8 film to covered buttons, leather repairs to bookbinding. Copies are available online for £3, including postage.
