My Benches



When we launched Books about Town, The Guardian ran a poll asking readers to vote for their favourite literary work to be immortalised as a BookBench. After weeks of close voting, Neil Gaiman’s  Neverwhere was the clear winner. The bench has been brought to life by illustrator and cartoonist Chris Riddell and is on display at  King’s Place, the Guardian’s headquarters in Kings Cross.

This lot includes 15 unique black and white illustrations, which were used in the creation of the bench. Each A3 illustration has been hand-drawn and signed by Chris Riddell and is presented in a frame.
