Item details

Vintage from the 1970s


harback cover, printed paper

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 1973, matt hard back cover Ladybird book entitled Tricks and Magic, by James Webster with illustrations by Robert Ayton

It is from the Series 633 collection, ISBN number 0721402453 with the printed price 15p on the reverse, first published in 1969

The front cover is in good condition (no scuffs of fading) but sadly the back cover and several pages have evidence of water damage in the form of large brown stains

"We all like to think we could perform some magic, and when you do many of the tricks in this book they will seem like magic to your friends. Only you will know the secrets! All the materials you will need can be found in and around the house."

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
