There is a fascinating exhibition of the Ladybird book artists at the Victoria Art Gallery in Bath until 14 April. It traces the interconnected work of these artists, and recounts the  company’s story during the period 1940 to 1975, Ladybird’s ‘golden years’. One of the most prolific of the Ladybird artists was Harry Wingfield (1910-2002), whose illustrations are well-known to past generations of young readers. This is from Shopping with Mother (1958), a Ladybird Learning to Read Book by by ME (Margaret Elise) Gagg.
