Ladybird Books, Charles Dickens

Ladybird Books, Charles Dickens

Currently on in London until 16 April 2017, an exhibition of the illustrations by artist John Kenny (1911-1972) for Ladybird Books An Adventure in History: Charles Dickens. The exhibition is at the Charles Dickens Museum London.

The exhibition presents John Kenny’s original illustrations. To quote the museum ‘Each shows an important scene from Dickens’s life in full colour with vivid characters and dynamic action. Kenney’s keen sense of historic detail is filtered by the flamboyant taste of his era: this is Victorian England, 1960s style.’
