Books about Town
By popular demand.
The National Literary Trust together with Wild in Art, created the Books About Town project. As result 50 ornate benches were placed around London in early July 2014. Each bench is dedicated to a particular book. The benches will be removed from 15 September 2014 in preparation for auction in October. The auction will raise money for the trust. What a great idea. Just below are a few I managed to photograph in Greenwich and here are all the Books About Town ⇒ and here is More About Greenwich ⇐.
I wish all benches were like these one! So lovely to see.

Thank you so much for sharing! These are incredible, and such a cool idea. As a former biology teacher, I have a particular soft spot for the first one. And as a pseudo-aunt to a five-year-old boy, I love the last one too. That’s a fun book. Nice work!

I’m glad you enjoyed. They are quite remarkable.
Referring back to the being lost comment. It won’t help you when get lost, but recite a few times and you just won’t care anymore. Enjoy the day. Graham. 🙂

A great effort by the organisers and a pleasant surprise. I didn’t know they were there until I stumbled upon one
