lehel kovacs brings us around the world in 80 days with street view sketches

 

budapest based illustrator, lehel kovacs has created a series of edgy illustrations, recreated from google map’s street view feature. based on jules verne’s novel ‘around the world in eighty days’, kovacs followed the route of protagonist phileas fogg, citing the exact locations in which the character travelled.

savile row 7, london – home of phileas fogg

 

 

lehel kovacs adds a new layer to the well known novel by revealing the location in a contemporary nature. a minimal palette has been applied to each drawing, using busts of color to highlight compositional arrangements. in the left hand bottom corner, one can see the google street view feature, allowing the viewer to discover the location. the journey – which you can follow here – starts at the reform club in london, through to savile row 7 – home of phileas fogg – then to france, italy, japan and finally broome street in new york.
