BookBench sculptures, London
Cleverly shaped like an open book, each BookBench offers residents and visitors an inspired spot to take a breather this summerâ€”and maybe even crack a book there. Designed by professional illustrators and local artists, the benches represent well-known books and stories associated with Londonâ€”from childrenâ€™s favorites like Peter Pan and The Wind in the Willows to popular adult titles like Great Expectations and Bridget Jonesâ€™s Diary.
The project website also offers detailed background on each bench, artist profiles, and trail maps for tracking down BookBenches and other cultural sites. All of the BookBenches will be auctioned off to the public in October.
