This is an original illustrated map of Hackney, a borough of London, UK, inspired by decorative antique map prints and the designs of MacDonald Gill (1884-1947), entirely hand-drawn and digitally coloured.
Its decoration scheme references the area's rich diversity, culture and history. The coat of arms at bottom centre of the image is the official arms of the borough. The two illustrations within the roundels at the right show views of Clissold Park in Stoke Newington in the north of the borough, and London Fields near Hackney Central in the south. The border decoration, inspired by the tile decoration on the exterior of a mosque on Stoke Newington Road, references the borough's Muslim and Turkish communities.
