In 1959 Ladybird Books published four volumes in the children’s series What To Look For In… namely, Spring, Summer, Autumn and Winter. These books nurtured in the young Jonathan Sainsbury a love of nature which has inspired him throughout his life. In tribute to them he has embarked on a project to reinterpret the illustrations in his own style and with an understanding that country life has changed. The exhibition includes 70 sepia watercolours alongside some of the original illustrations.
