TYPOGRAPHIC MAPS OF LONDON

A collection of Limited Edition pop culture themed typographic maps of London Town, celebrating the capital’s credentials as one of the world’s most iconic, cinematic and creative cities. With maps celebrating London’s legendary literary heritage and deep down music cool, this trio of maps features novels, films and some of the best musicians in history, all plotted in the locations they are most famously associated. 


MUSIC MAP OF LONDON

A dense typographic map jamming to the sound of London’s rich musical heritage. Bringing centre stage a heady, curated mix of music, musicians, songs and lyrics that make our Capital one of the most rocking cities in the world. Dig deep to enjoy discovering places made famous in song, songs about the city, and references to the places musicians were born, gigged, lived it up and partied, but also where they crashed and burnt or died. Spy the locations of iconic recording studios, music videos and famous album covers, Abbey Road, oversized inflatable pigs, Firestarters and Waterloo sunsets. Nine months of agonisingly detailed typography and research went into this unique journey into London’s lyrical underbelly.


LONDON FILM MAP

An intricate hand-crafted typographic map of London swarming with film titles, actors and directors, plotted on the map where they most made their mark. Also featuring some of London’s most iconic picture houses, film studios and red carpet locations. Combining hand-drawn typography and illustration, the London Film Map celebrates the capital’s credentials as one of the world’s most iconic celluloid cities.


LITERARY LONDON MAP

For those who love the written wordsmithery. A map of the capital featuring characters from the pages of novels based in London. Featuring the famous and the infamous. And also the less well known. Those with an amazing moniker or brilliantly conceived nickname who are a credit to their creator. Each character has been plotted in the corners of the city they most liked to roam or chose to call home (sometimes at Her Majesty’s Pleasure). Combining hand-drawn typography and illustration, more than 250 novels were mined in the making of this piece.


LITERARY LONDON

Literary London is a collection of art celebrating the capital’s rich literary heritage. Bringing to life the army of fictional characters who were born here. From the dreamers and dandies to the eerily eccentric and downright dangerous. Not just the living, but also the walking dead. All the winged and many-legged creatures who’ve been immortalised in the pages of novels. And who continue to inhabit and delight imaginations the world over. The larger than life personalities conceived by an equally eclectic horde of authors obsessed with London’s every nook and cranny, its bawdy taverns and refined townhouses, as well as the cities notorious underbelly, its clinks and courts of law. 


FILM NOIR

Film Noir. A graphic study in film. Crafted exclusively in velvet-rich noir tones. Film Noir prints come strictly in black and white and have been created in a mix of illustration and typography. They are designed to work singly but also to hang well together as an eclectic mix.
