The Ladybird Book of Prayers Through the Year 1964


The Ladybird Book of Prayers Through the Year feels like a nostalgic trip back to 1960s school assemblies.  It is a calendar of lovely illustrations, by artist Clive Uptton, and kind thoughts about counting your blessings and living your best life.  Despite the title, the illustrations are very domestic – meal times, walks in the country, holidays by the sea etc.  The illustrations could have comes straight out of Treasure Magazine – where Uptton was the main illustrator.  First printed in 1964, it was one of the last titles to be originally printed with a dust jacket.
