New Map commissions

There have been lots of new map commissions this year, I have been scrawling buildings n parks n people left right and centre. I am now working on a great new commission, more details to be revealed soon.
Meanwhile, there is a Kings Cross map.

Exclusively available at the Kentishtowner shop, this one features the new swizzy Kings Cross plus the time-honoured bastions of sanity – St Pancras Station, the British Library, St Pancras Old Church etc. I also welcome commissions for bespoke maps, which make really rather great gifts. please contact me here.

The Kentishtowner papery edition featured my Cultural Map on the front page in 2013. You can buy a limited edition 2014 print of the map here, in A2 size for £65 inc. UK delivery. Printed in full colour on super high quality Hahnemühle art paper, this new version for 2014 now features KT and Camden hotspots plus some fine venues that did not make the edit first time: the Bull and Last, the Pineapple, Camden Brewery, Dartmouth Park Arms… It’s also limited to 50 prints, all numbered and signed.
