To millions of people, Ladybird books were as much a part of childhood as battery-powered torches and warm school milk. These now iconic pocket-sized books once informed us on such diverse subjects as how magnets work, what to look for in winter and how to make decorations out of old eggshells. But they also helped to teach many of us to read via a unique literacy scheme known as 'key words'. Ladybird books were also a visual treat - some of the best-known contemporary illustrators were recruited to provide images which today provide a perfect snapshot of the lost world of Ladybirdland: a place that is forever the gloriously ordinary, orderly 1950s.

Creating Prints and Books is part of author Chris Orwig's investigation of Adobe Lightroom 5, and focuses on the Print and Books modules, which can be used to create high-quality prints and proofs and design custom layouts for books. Chris briefly reviews how to correct and paint away gamut issues and other problems in the Develop module and shows how to take advantage of templates and collections. The course also shows how to adjust print job settings for contact sheets, single image prints, and print packages, and the final chapters guide photographers through the step-by-step process of building and printing a book from Lightroom.
