Ladybird Books Vintage Illustrations (UK)


When I posted this image, it was still accessible. At first I was angry because I saw it as just another way to privatize public domain. But when I read the Wikipedia entry (Ladybird Books UK) I see the children’s book company has been around since 1867, so the images are possibly copyright, under the subsidiary regulations of the Penguin group. So goes corporate hegemony.
