Ladybird by Design - Lawrence Zeegen

I'm absolutely loving this book! Ladybird by Design - 100 years of Words and Pictures by Lawrence Zeegen starts with the early days, through the golden ages and all the way up to the innovation of today - looking at design desicions, illustration influences and details such as typography and layout of the books.

Everytime I open this book, I spot something new or read an interesting snipet such as what the digits in the series numbers mean or have a memory pop up - seriously - Shera and He-man are in this book!

I studied a BA (hons) in Marketing and Advertising at the London College of Printing (university of the Arts) and I often got to explore other departments in the building and ones that always intrigued me were the typography exhibits and printing departments! The author, Lawrence Zeegan is the Professor of Illustration and Dean of the school of design at the University of the Arts :)
Shera and He-man!
