Book Bench Design

The National Literacy Trust worked with Wild in Art to bring Books about Town to the streets of London in summer 2014. Trails of benches shaped as open books, decorated by professional illustrators and local artists, appeared for the public to enjoy.
At the end of summer 2014, all the benches were auctioned at an exclusive event in the Southbank Centre to raise funds for the National Literacy Trust's vital work to raise literacy levels in the UK.
The event was a huge success and the sale of the 50 BookBenches raised £251,500 for the National Literacy Trust.
