About

This brand new edition (August 2016) of the Literary London Map is screenprinted on to gorgeous Royal Blue Plike paper, using white block and a fluro Pink to pull out the boroughs of London.

A map of the capital featuring characters from the pages of novels based in London. The famous and 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.

Part of the Literary London art print collection from Run For The Hills. The perfect gift for book lovers of all ages.

Limited Edition

A limited edition of 50, signed and numbered by the artist Dex.

Size: 70cm x 50cm

Quote by the Artist

"A map of London featuring characters from the pages of novels based in London. The famous and 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 on Her Majesty's Pleasure). Combining hand-drawn typography and illustration, more than 250 novels were mined in the making of this piece. We owe a particular debt to the brilliance of Charles Dickens, whose skill in penning unique and characterful names led to the creation of another piece in the collection.

"This piece was a labour of love for me and Anna. A month of late nights and early risings, researching 100's of novels to find characters with kooky names. Central London has rich pickings, and it was tough deciding what made the final cut. Spots around the edges of town were more of a challenge, though, as you'd expect. Not so many novels were set in Canning Town or Brondesbury. But we got there." - Dex
