London photos: Terry Pratchett’s Discworld book bench


Charity venture Books about Town placed 50 benches in the shape of giant books and painted to commemorate all sorts of great British writers around London this summer. They’ve just come off display, and will be auctioned off on October 7th. See Books about Town for more info.

This is the bench dedicated to Terry Pratchett’s Discworld novels. (Click here for a larger version of the front.)

    Sir Terry has provided innumerable hours of enjoyment for me over the years — he should have had TWO benches.

    Fantastic shots, thank you! I never knew Wee Mad Arthur was down at the bottom, riding on a London pigeon :-)

  • Steven Elliott James

    It is Buggy Squires, of the City Watch Aerial Division, on the pigeon.

    This is my new favorite recurring feature on this site. These benches are lovely and make me miss London.
