Books about Town.

50 unique benches –  designed by local artists and famous names to celebrate London’s literary heritage and reading for enjoyment – appeared in London early July.

They’re around until 15 September and at the end of the summer they will be auctioned to raise money for the National Literacy Trust‘s vital work to raise literacy levels in the UK.

Last weekend, we followed the Greenwich Trail… and this is what we found (shown here in no particular order):

  • We’re Going on a Bear Hunt (back and front)
  • Dr Samuel Johnson’s Dictionary (detail)
  • The Hitchhiker’s Guide to the Galaxy (detail)
  • The Canterbury Tales (front)
  • The Railway Children (front and back)
  • The Time Machine (front)
  • On the Origin of Species (detail)
  • Samuel Pepys’ Diary (front and back)
  • The Secret Diary of Adrian Mole (Girl Engrossed) (front and detail)
  • The Jungle Book (front)
  • Captain Scott’s Autobiography, Greenwich (front and detail)

Great fun!

There were a few other people following the trail. And all in all, I think I was quite lucky to get clear shots of the benches… it’s a busy place Greenwich at the weekend, especially on a warm afternoon.
