Classic Books Become London Benches

Posted at 5:16AM Wednesday 02 Jul 2014

Literary classics ranging from Peter Pan to The Day of the Triffids are being celebrated in a series of colourful illustrated benches.

Designed by artists and writers to look like open books, the 50 seats have been placed around London.

Cartoonist Ralph Steadman and How To Train Your Dragon creator Cressida Cowell are among those taking part.
