Loughborough Echo - - NEWS -

THE Lough­bor­ough Li­brary Lo­cal Stud­ies Vol­un­teers are pre­sent­ing a dis­play of some less fa­mil­iar Lady­bird books.

Among those on show will be ex­am­ples of Lady­bird books pub­lished to mark a va­ri­ety of his­tor­i­cal an­niver­saries, na­tional in­sti­tu­tions, sport­ing events, USA-only publi­ca­tions and spe­cial edi­tions as used by in­dus­try.

The work of a lo­cal Lady­bird pho­tog­ra­pher is cel­e­brated and the process of de­vel­op­ing a Lady­bird book from its in­cep­tion to the fin­ished prod­uct is il­lus­trated.

The com­pany’s early de­vel­op­ment un­der the guid­ance of Henry Wills and Wil­liam Simp­son Hep­worth, their per­sonal sto­ries and mile­stones in the com­pany’s Lough­bor­ough his­tory are pre­sented.

The free ex­hi­bi­tion will run un­til the end of Oc­to­ber, dur­ing li­brary open­ing hours.
