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.

In 2012, after six month’s intricate work, a lot of sleepless nights, countless hours of research, we launched RFTH’s first col­lec­tion, Literary London.

The col­lec­tion has been enor­mous­ly suc­cess­ful, with the central piece (Literary London Map) being selected as a winner of the Design25 com­pe­ti­tion for the London Design Festival.  Another piece (A Study In Sherlock) was selected by GAP & Threadless and turned into a T‑Shirt sold in stores across USA.

Have a look below at a selection of the more popular pieces. You can find out more on the website
