Can We Have These Gorgeous Book-Inspired Benches?

Hoo boy, we are jealoooouuuus. Staring today and running through September 15th, London is getting a set of 50 book-inspired benches designed by local artists. It’s all from Books about Town, and we are so sad that they won’t be nearby where we can sit on them all day and read. Just look at these beauties!


Fly away with Mary Poppins:

And there are so many more! Head over to the Books about Town website to see all of the benches. We feel like we could just curl up into their pages and never leave. Can they send us a few after they’re done?
