There was another Ladybird Book article in a national newspaper last week – this time The Independent on Saturday. Here’s the link to it:

The article was written as a prelude to the opening of the exhibition of Martin Aitchison’s original Ladybird Book artwork at Newby Hall in Yorkshire.

This exhibition is going on until September and has been a big success so far – the best selling pieces being (unsurprisingly) the original Peter and Jane illustrations from the 1960s.
