london by hand‘ is a hand-drawn map of london, created by british artist jenni sparks for london-based art print producers evermade.
based on a geographic map of the london metro system, the print replicates the streets, neighborhoods, and landmarks of the city,
as well as highlighting lesser-known, quirkier shops, museums, and tidbits of local history. the birthplaces of british celebrities
and locations of local markets are among the information depicted in hand-drawn letters and sketches.

jenni sparks worked for two months to complete the map, which is sold here on the evermade shop.
