Books, Videos & Artwork

Susan Jellis has written a book about Bloomsbury Squares and Gardens which has been beautifully illustrated with original sketches by Nick Andrew

This book showcases these diverse squares, traces their history and gives a sense of their life today. There are 13 double page illustrations which bring the modern activities of the squares to life, as well as studies of statues and other aspects of the gardens.

All the proceeds are going to support the work of the Association and the Friends groups. The book is available from Skoob Books in the Brunswick or skoob.com

You can watch videos of the artist talking about making his sketches in the squares, and of Griff Rhys Jones strolling through them, below:

Local resident and broadcaster Griff Rhys Jones kindly gave us his time to visit our squares and make a video of his impressions for the Bloomsbury Festival. Watch the video Strolling the Bloomsbury Gardens with Griff Rhys Jones here:
