In 1964 my father was commissioned by Ladybird Books to produce illustrations for The Stories of Our Christmas Customs. Over the next six years he worked on a further nine titles, including three books of Nursery Rhymes and two of the Kings and Queens of England, The History of Food, The History of Transport, Christmas Customs, Madame Curie and of course, good old Peter and Jane.

Here, as with all his commissions, he remained a stickler for accuracy. His historical subjects were always meticulously researched and the love of detail that he brought to Dan Dare is very apparent in these Ladybird illustrations.

A small selection of boards will be offered for sale on this website at any one time, but if you have a particular favourite which isn't showing, please let me know and I'll see if it's available.
