The Seashore and Seashore Life, 1964 edition. Series 536.
This book is written by Nancy Scott, with jewel-like, vibrant illustrations by Jill Payne. Payne was one of a rare breed – a female illustrator working for Ladybird over the ‘golden years’ – between the late 1950s and early 70s. If you ever get a chance to see her original artwork for her Ladybird books, take it. The original artwork is painted to about the same size as the final picture in the book – exquisite.
This matt copy dates to around 1972. Very good condition inside and out
