Designed in 2012, this original illustrated map of Shoreditch and Spitalfields in east London, UK, is inspired by decorative antique map prints and is entirely hand-drawn and digitally coloured.

Its decoration scheme references the area's rich diversity, culture and history. The two illustrations depict two prominent historical landmarks: Nicholas Hawksmoor's famous Christ Church Spitalfields (completed 1729) on Commercial Street at the bottom left, and St. Leonard's Church on Shoreditch High Street (designed by Charles Dance and completed around 1740) at the top right. The two shields at the left of the image represent the old Metropolitan Borough of Shoreditch (absorbed into the modern London Borough of Hackney in 1965) and the Huguenot Cross, a symbol of the many French refugees who settled in and around Spitalfields in the 18th century and who brought with them their lucrative silk-weaving skills.

The border decoration references the silk-weaving and furniture-making industries which once dominated the area, as well as the theatres that existed in Shakespeare's time and the fruit and vegetable market at Spitalfields.
