Depictions of Landships in "Look and Learn"

Anyone old enough to remember Look and Learn, the educational magazine/comic/newspaper for children? It published from 1962 to 1982, when it ceased.

At some point it relaunched - or at least someone began using the title - as a picture library, like Getty, Pathé, etc., selling images.

You can probably guess what was the first thing I searched for.

Some very interesting stuff, in particular a series of covers of the Italian weekly magazine La Domenica Del Corriere, beautiful hand-painted scenes depicting, amongst other things, Italian military history. Some of the WWI stuff will ring a bell with Landshippers:


And also some mistakes. This is captioned "The Battle of the Somme, 1916":


And this shows British tanks supposedly operating against rebels in Tripolitania. I suspect this is a mix-up with the Fiat 2000.



Anyway, happy searching. All comments and observations welcome.
