Ladybird by DesignOver 120 original illustrations from classic Ladybird titles go on display in celebration of 100 years of Ladybird Books in this special exhibition at the House of Illustration, which itself celebrates one year since it opened. Publishing books for children since 1915, Ladybird stands out as one of the most iconic and well-known children's brands. Their full-colour, full-page illustrations were commissioned from well-known illustrators such as Charles Tunnicliffe, and Harry Wingfield who illustrated more than 65 titles including Ladybird's Key Words Reading Scheme and its Junior Science series. Selection was rigorous, with only the best commercial illustrators commissioned but the books were widely available and sold cheaply and their appeal endures today.

 

About House of Illustration

House of Illustration, the first permanent home of the charity of the same name, opened in Granary Square, King's Cross, in summer 2014 with an inaugural exhibition of works by much loved illustrator Quentin Blake. The gallery and education space is the place to see, learn about, and enjoy illustration in all its forms, from adverts to animation, picture books to political cartoons and scientific drawings to fashion design.
