Wildlife as it was.

This week I went to the RA exhibition of Matisse in the studio. 

I then went to see the work of Charles Tunnicliffe RA .

He drew and painted the sketches that were used in the Ladybird books. 

I still have a collection including What to look for in Winter.

The original paintings are a delight.

The detail is amazing.

1960 was not that long ago and yet it is a lifetime away from the graphics for books today.

We know that these books were produced in a way that kept the cost down.

However their appeal was monumental.

The market they reached was vast.

I wonder how many companies can boasts of

such records today.

A visit to the RA is always worth.

Why not pop along.
