Steadman Benched!

Ok, it’s taken us a while to notice it, but in the summer of 2014, a project by the National Literacy Trust (UK) scattered 50 book-shaped benches across the capital for the summer, each dedicated to an iconic London-related author or character (although that criterion is rather loosely interpreted; Dr. Seuss?). Through the Looking-Glass (left) was drawn, obviously, by Ralph Steadman. Read about it in The Guardian; a list and photos of the fifty benches is here. They were auctioned off that October.
