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.
