The tree illustrations are by Stanley Roy Badmin (1906 - 1989), who was one of the youngest ever associate members of the Royal Watercolour Society, at age 26. Known for his beautiful watercolours and his love of rural life, his Puffin Picture Book Trees in Britain, 1943, has been described as ‘one of the most beautiful illustrated books of the century’. The pictures on these covers are from the Ladybird Book of Trees (1963). Trees are also named inside the back covers of the book.
