London photos: Terry Pratchett’s Discworld book bench

discworldbench1

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.)
