Description

I am delighted to introduce a selection of highly collectable vintage Ladybird books to Get Smitten as I acquired an entire collection on a recent fabric and prop buying hunt!

The Ladybird books are an ubiquitous part of British childhood history. Since the 1940s, children have been learning from and with these well loved and beautifully illustrated hardback books, covering a multitude of subjects and themes. They have become highly sought after in recent years - particularly the 1970s versions

This listing is for a 1970s edition, matt hard back cover Ladybird book entitled The Ladybird ABC with illustrations by G. W. Robinson

It is from the Series 622 collection, ISBN number 0721400477 with the printed price 24p on the reverse, first published in 1962

It is in excellent condition throughout with barely any scuffs on the cover and features fabulous, retro illustrations from the 1962 original edition for every letter of the alphabet

"This book has been carefully planned to help young children to learn the letters of the alphabet.
The subjects of the excellent illustrations are those with which every child is familiar, and they have been specially chosen to avoid any possibility of confusion.
All teachers and discerning parents - and others interested in good teaching practice - will appreciate the carefully planned and spaced 'school script' lettering, and the fact that the introduction of the capital letters has been delayed until the end of the book."

Please note: I do not issue refunds for a change of mind or for defect fabric - my listings detail the composition of the fabric (ie, cotton or polycotton etc) and also its pre-loved condition. If a print is faded it will be mentioned, and I do not send out fabrics that have uneven fading, holes, stains or unpleasant smells! Please read the listing carefully before purchasing

Sadly any return shipping will be at the buyers expense. Thank you for your understanding

Additional policies

I often have larger quantities of certain vintage fabrics so if you require more than a fat quarter do please ask to see if I have more in stock. I'm always happy to oblige!

FAQs

What is a fat quarter, I hear you cry?! It is a term widely used in the patchwork and crafting world that denotes a quarter of a meter of fabric. In order to give a more useful area to work with, they take a meter of fabric and quarter it by length and width so that you have a 'fat' quarter rather than a long one

They are 18 x 22" or 45 x 55cm
If you require pieces of vintage fabric larger than a fat quarter, please message me with you requirements. I have enough in stock I am happy to oblige.

My fabrics are pre-loved sheeting and so are not available by the meter or yard as with traditional fabrics - please let me know your desired size and will measure the amount I have left in stock

If you purchase multiples of one fabric, I will always try to provide it as one cut piece wherever possible. I will message you before dispatching your order if this is not possible
