    One of my Christmas presents this year was a copy of “Own Label”, a lovely book that showcases the work of Sainsbury’s design studio from 1962 to 1977.

  • Ladybird Books

    Over the Christmas period there was a wonderful documentary on BBC4 called The Ladybird Books Story. You might still be able to catch it on iPlayer or possibly YouTube. It’s well worth watching for anyone who remembers the books fondly from their Primary School days.
