Icons of Childhood project

This project, generously funded by the Museums Libraries and Archives Council (MLA) under the Designation Development Fund, seeks to preserve and create access to the Records of Ladybird Books and Archive of George Bell & Sons Ltd collections.

The project will include a full conservation survey of the publishing collections held at the University of Reading, enhanced cataloguing, and a new session for schools. Details of volunteering opportunities and other ways to get involved will be posted here in due course.

For more information, see the Icons of Childhood blog.
