It takes not just enough but an incredibly long thread of patience to draw a map with your bare hands. Well I guess, illustrator Jenni Sparks had a lot more than that when she worked pretty hard to complete this hand-drawn map of the old London town. Sparks was commissioned by art print retailer Evermade to produce a London map aimed at capturing the essence of London’s landmarks, meticulously highlighting its boroughs and neighborhoods as well as its hallmarks that make the place a unique city as it is.
The map covers most of zones 1 and 2, the map goes as far as Roehampton, Putney, Ravenscourt Park, White City Estate, Roundwood Park, Cricklewood, Hampstead, Kentish Town, Highbury, Hackeny Downs, Temple Mills, Stratford, The Olympic Village, West Ham, Leamouth, Canrary Wharf, Greenwich, BLack Heath, Leiwsham, Ladywell, Brockely, Dulwich Park, Herne Hill,Clapham Common, Wandsworh Common, Clapham Junction and King George’ Park. Pheww! It also covers the main areas of London that you’d expect, such as Fulham, Kensington, Notting Hill, Brixton, Hyde Park, Maida Vale, The Shard, Shorditch, Bethnal Green, Islington, Angel, Chalk Farm, Camden, Kilburn, Willesden, Shepherds Bush, Hammersmith, Chelsea, Westminster, Battersea, Kennington, Oval, Camberwell, Old Kent Road, Bermondsey, Southwark, Deptford, Park Lane, Piccadilly and more!
