Sunshine & Ladybirds...
Jennifer of Little Birds Fly asked a question about my Lady Bird book collection (a previous blog post), and I thought I would indulge myself today, showing you some pictures etc.. from my collection.
In the 1960s, Ladybird produced the Learnabout series of non-fiction books, which right now probably make up the bulk of my collection - Click here if you interested in learning more about Ladybirds History.
From a personal point of view, it was probably nostalgia that prompted me to begin collecting the books. I still remember pouring over the lavish illustrations of Cinderella as a child, and to spot a 'matt' edition in a charity shop or book sale feels like hitting the jackpot! I have mostly paid around 10p for each book, and the obscure topics that I often stumble upon never cease to amaze me.
