Public Art Trails

Following the success of the Public Art trails during the London Olympic year there have been a number of other public art trials taking place in recent years.

Books about Town

Also in 2014 the Books about Town trails appeared across the Capital. These sculptures were based on iconic books and authors and celebrated London’s literary heritage. On 7 October 2014 the Books about Town were sold at auction with the proceeds going towards the National Literacy Trust.
