    The paperback book

    Get your copy of Ben Wilson, The Chewing Gum Man - The Millennium Bridge Gum Trail. It's a 96page A6 (postcard) sized book that will look great on any coffee table - especially next to a really big coffee table book. Beyond that - it's just going to be a great journey into Ben's world, and the people he meets. Ben wanted to make the book affordable, which we believe £5 is, and we all wanted to make the book as environmentally friendly as possible - so we're printing it at one of the world's most eco friendly printers - waterless, no chemicals, recycled stock, renewable energy. The book will be ready for Christmas and make a great gift for young and old alike.
