The Literary London Map is the central piece from our first Limited Edition Art Collection. The piece was born in 2012, after six months hard labour, a lot of sleepless nights and countless hours of research. Designed painstakingly by Dex in our Run For The Hills art studio.
Find out more about the collection on the website – www.literarylondonartprints.co.uk.
All of our limited edition prints are available at selected stockists:
Have a look at the full list of 25 winning designs at this year’s London Design Festival. The winners were selected by a combination of public voting and an expert panel of Henrietta Thompson (Editor at Large, Wallpaper*), Max Fraser (Deputy Director, LDF) and Peter Tullin (Co-founder, CultureLabel).
Competition was tough, and debate fierce, but we made the final cut alongside some really amazing designs from the other 24 winners including:

The studio’s Christmas tree is dressed in red & white alpine this year and we celebrated with a suitably retro Swiss cheese fondue party last night. Waking up at least 1kg heavier this morning…
The studio is in full on festive mode & packing up lots of Christmas art print orders. We’re not the most popular people in the Post Office queue these days…
Lovely blog piece by Dear Coffee I Love You, about our Siberian glass-domed coffee shop design for the specialty coffee company we’ve been interior designing for over the last year. Traveler’s Coffee are a true 3rd wave artisan coffee brand, roasting and grinding their own exclusive coffees from specialist coffee plantations and single estate farms around the world. They are growing quickly, with 76 locations in 5 countries (Russia, China, Ukraine, Kazakhstan, Azerbaijan). We’re loving working with them on creating a suite of exciting new interior designs and we have also been working on a whole range of in-venue graphics and packaging design for them. More coming on that soon.
A sneak peek of my new restaurant design concept. A double height space with private booths overlooking genius bar style long tables where manual brew coffee demonstrations and Barista masterclasses will be taking place. Also featuring some of our new graphic artwork, recently designed for artisan specialty coffee brand Traveller’s Coffee.
I didn’t know this but apparently milk has been used as a base for paint for 1000s of years, mixed with lime and pigments to form a paint prized at the time for its tough, flat finish.
The new generation of Milk Paints have an added benefit, being environmentally friendly acrylic paints designed to be as close to the original milk paint as possible without any of the old school rigmarole. They dry to a super matt finish that has the same silky texture as an original milk paint finish. Apparently they can be cleaned with water and are suitable for indoor and outdoor use. Left matt or finished with wax or glaze.
And no, you don’t need to keep it in the fridge 🙂
