Vintage Ladybird Book Covers used as Kitchen Border

Sometimes kitsch lives in nostalgia. Old design & branding bringing back warm, familiar feelings & a "things were better in our day" mood.

Ladybird books have spotted this market & now sell a range of cake tins, memo-boards & mugs adorned with the Learn to Read covers from the 70s & 80s.

If like me you learnt your words with the help of Peter & Jane and Kathy & Mark, not to forget Socks the dog, then just seeing some of these illustrations will bring memories flooding back.

Ladybird Vintage Prints online also provide a service to order any of the pages from their hundreds of informational books as glorious, full colour prints.

I chose a cheap option & printed out little versions of some of the illustrations I liked best.
Now in plain, dirt-cheap ikea frames, I think they look quite nice along the back of the kitchen counter.
