A satirical take on the 1960s learning-to-read Ladybird books takes Jane, Peter and Mummy on an adventure through a contemporary gallery.

‘We Go To The Gallery' is a satirical work by British comedian and artist Miriam Elia in the style of the classic British 1960s learn-to-read Ladybird books. In the spoof, Jane, Peter and Mummy visit a modern art gallery and learn about death, God and sex. For example, when confronted with an empty room, Mummy explains that ‘there is nothing in the room because God is dead.'

The book captures the look and feel of the classic series perfectly, replicating even the traditional paper stock, binding and printing technique. In order to produce the first limited edition run of one thousand copies, the author ran a Kickstarter campaign that successfully raised the £4,000 needed.
