Dedicated to old Ladybird books - 1914 -1975

A history of Ladybird Books in the 20th Century

Ladybird books and the 20th century

One of the reasons that I have stayed interesting in the company ‘Ladybird’ all these years is the way its history so neatly traces the currents of the 20th century in Britain.  This is something I write about elsewhere in much greater details, but for now, here’s a brief interoduction.

Here’s a brief presentation I made some years ago, offering an outline to the history of Ladybird books.  You’ll find many more details regarding the history of the company (originally called ‘Wills & Hepworth’) elsewhere on my site.  To find them, you could try looking at the category History.
