  Dial M for Monster
by Lauren O'Farrell

Dial M for Monster is a cosy handcrafted creature created from around 100 balls of yarn. Knitted, crocheted and hand sewn, Lauren's ArtBox captures a sense of childhood storytelling and curiosity with a tender crafted sentiment.

Please note that Dial M for Monster is a replica telephone box and does not include a working telephone. There is no internal space or operating door. Following life on London's streets and to ensure that Dial M for Monster is in very good condition, some restoration may be carried out by the BT ArtBox artist team.

Want to see it first? Find Dial M for Monster on the streets at Trafalgar Square Roundabout.
