Step into the magical and vibrant world of Ladybird art, where every picture tells a story and unlocks a thousand childhood memories.

Ladybird books have been a familiar fixture on children’s bookshelves since the 1950s, but few people are aware that they date back to the early days of the Second World War.

Told through Helen Day's unparalleled collection of books, original artwork and artefacts, this exhibition shows how the many talented Ladybird illustrators played such an enormous role in the company’s success during the 20th century.
