Beautiful Illustrated City Maps

London MapThe other day I was lucky enough to have a good close up look at some Jenni Sparks prints from the online art store Evermade. It’s great to be able to view artwork online, but there’s nothing like studying it in the flesh, if you know what I mean ?

I’ve written about my trips to Berlin and New York before and talk about lovely London a lot because I’m a city girl at heart. These truly intricate, hand drawn map prints by Jenni Sparks really took my breath away. The latest edition – Paris took six months in total to complete. There’s lots of research behind all of the illustrations with quirky pieces of information in each area and landmark places to visit. Berlin MapNew York Map

It must be such an enlightening experience getting to know the people who live locally and where they like to hang out, whilst designing each map. The time and love that Jenni has put in to each piece is clear to see. So hoping that Tokyo is next on her list !

What’s your favourite city in the world and why  ? Leave me a comment or tweet me @lucylovesyablog. Would love to know.
