Classic Books Hit the Streets

By

A public art project in London this summer aims to remind people of the joy that comes with reading books by decorating benches across the city with illustrations from classic literature. The book-shaped benches are sponsored by the National Literacy Trust and feature authors ranging from Oscar Wilde to C.S. Lewis. Visit Electric Literature to see photos of the benches.
