London’s benches are becoming open books this summer, thanks to Britain’s National Literacy Trust, which has brought 50 new sculptures into the city, with help from public art promoter Wild in Art. Each bench celebrates a different story, ranging from C.S. Lewis’ “The Lion, The Witch and The Wardrobe” to Julia Davidson’s “The Gruffalo,” Lewis Carroll’s “Through the Looking Glass” to J.M. Barrie’s “Peter Pan.”
Thanks, Ally, for the tip!
What a lovely, bright way of reminding us of the joys of reading!
