Hand Drawn London Map Print based on Historic Ordinance Survey map of 2104
LONDON MAP PRINT
HAND DRAWN HISTORIC MAP OF LONDON - Limited Edition Print
Inspired by my previous career as an Urban Designer and my love of maps I decided to created this intricate hand drawn map of London. Based on the 1914 Ordinance Survey Map of London, before the bombs and the 60’s and 70’s changed some pieces of the city forever. Taking over 100 hours to create this London Print and the drawing focuses on the elegant simplicity of the building form and the street network taking out all the additional text information and allowing the wonderful pattern of the urban form to shine through.
This map is at a scale of approximately 1:5000 and covers the area from Westminster in the west to the Tower of London in the east, Smithfield Market in the north and Bermondsey in the south. It has been simply coloured and professionally reproduced using Museum Quality Gidlee Printing onto 310 grm German Etching Fine Art Paper.
Intricately details with a contemporary yet simple colour palatte.

THE MAP IN PRODUCTION
This London map print was a real labour of love taking over 100 hours to drawn by hand and over 6 weeks to complete. The original images were hand drawn onto tracing paper in about 6 seperate panels. Once completed these were digitally scanned and then finished and cleaned up using Photoshop before being coloured.
