Another Story


Today's book about town is the the Lion the Witch and the Wardrobe, a C. S Lewis tale, created by kiwi artist Mandi Pope.  This one is in St George's park in Bloomsbury near the Foundling Museum.

Not only do we get to enjoy these 50 "books about town" throughout the summer, but there is an opportunity to own one.  They are to be auctioned on 7 October.  To register an interest you can bid in advance here.

I'd not heard of 'books about town' until I saw your recent posts. Excellent idea - love the benches. I have particularly fond memories of the Lion the Witch and the Wardrobe; magical stuff! Thanks for the gen and the photos.

You know looking at the book makes me shiver I feel I'd get a cold bum sitting on it.

I absolutely adore all of these benches that I have been seeing pictures of, I can't wait to see them myself when I'm over! Fantastic!
Have a wonderful day!

Perfect! Did the artists pick the book to illustrate, or were they assigned? (Love the lady pointing in the background.)
