Pre-Raphaelite Pilgrimage Map for Curiocity
This map is my second contribution to Curiocity Magazine (a miniature fold-out guide to London co-created, edited and independently published by writers Henry Eliot and Matt Lloyd), the latest issue of which has been published in association with the National Trust; the map forms the fold-out centrepiece and shows a walking route, or ‘Pilgrimage’, between Borough in central London and Red House in Bexleyheath, built in the 19th century by William Morris, and now owned by the National Trust. As Morris was associated with the Pre-Raphaelite painters, this became the overall theme of the route and the map itself.
The route is roughly 13 miles long and passes through much of south-east London suburbia; it was devised by the magazine’s editors and loosely echoes the route taken by medieval pilgrims from London to Canterbury. Many places and points of interest are featured along the route and are numbered on the map; a few of these are represented by pen illustrations also drawn by myself.
The magazine is available to purchase online and at several stores around London, their website address is http://www.curiocity.org.uk
