Ladybird Books: Vintage Knitting Prints

KnittingI love vintage illustrations. My living room walls are decorated with french vintage prints and I have a hard time ever passing up a Mucha print.

These prints from the Ladybird Books printed in the 50s and 60s are a little more recent than most vintage pieces I’m drawn to, but the illustrations are gorgeous.

I’ve pulled a few examples from the Knitting book, but there are several dozen books in the archives and more than 4,500 images. A really amazing collection.

Ladybirdprints is an online selection of more than 4500 images from the Ladybird Books Archive. These images have been licensed from The Copyrights Group and represent a social history of Britain in the 50s and 60s. The images are available to purchase for your own personal use or as a gift.
