An intricate type map of the capital teeming with infamous fictional characters from London’s literary past and present. Featuring 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 could’ve almost filled the map alone.
