This is an original illustrated map of Tower Hamlets, 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 border decoration is inspired by Bangladeshi textile patterns and references the borough's Muslim community. The coat of arms at bottom right of the image is the official arms of the borough, and the three coats of arms at top left are those which were featured in the old Borough of Poplar's seal until 1965. Illustrations at bottom left and top right show views of Canary Wharf and Docklands from the riverside at Wapping, and the East London Mosque on Whitechapel Road.
