"bird box" little free library
As part of the 2014 E17 Art Trail I was chosen to design one of 12 "Little Free Libraries", each of which was designed and painted by a local artist, and installed in front gardens around Walthamstow.

I chose a bird theme for my little library, and as the William Morris Gallery is situated at the bottom of the road where the library is installed I also included William Morris sitting on a branch engrossed in a book.

Each little library is filled with books, which everyone is free to borrow, and leave a book themselves. Read more about the Little Free Libraries UK project started by Rebecca & Nick Cheshire, and to find out how you can have a little free library installed in your own area:


You can visit my "bird box" little free library on Ruby Road, London E17 (next door to Ruby Stables at the top of the hill).

I've since been commissioned to paint three more little free libraries. Two were installed in October 2014 on Wingfield Road, London E17, one of which is dedicated just for children's books. Click on "two more little free libraries" on the right for photos. In July 2015 I've just painted my fourth LFL, destined for a school in Essex - click on "school Little Free Library" for photos.
