Sit and Read


Summer with a good book, somethings just go together don't they.

Over the coming weeks 50 benches in the shape of a book will appear around the city.  Decorated by local artists and illustrators, the titles will all have a connection to London.

This the first of the books about town I will show you: "Jeeves and Wooster" the work of artist Gordon Allum.  Look for it at the Brunswick shopping centre in Bloomsbury.

This is such a nice project. I have seen numerous cities put on exhibitions like this with animals (West Hartford did cows), but this is the first I have seen with books. I like the idea of books MUCH better. You will have fun tracking down the book benches, and we will have fun looking at your pix of them.
