Featured Artist - Nina Dogmetchi

Featured Artist - Nina Dogmetchi

How excited were we this week to take delivery of our first order of a wonderful book and to hear the uplifting story from its' creator about how she is 'living her dream'?

Nina Dogmetchi has lived in Archway for most of her life - It was an absolute pleasure to have her work at map gift shop briefly back in 2000. Since then her career has taken her on an exciting and colourful journey through textile designer in New York, Artist in Residence at Eton College to Graphic Designer at 2 major sportswear labels in Germany.

In 2013 Nina took the daring decision to quit her job at Adidas and set up her own company Imagination Illustrated. In January this year Nina made a Kickstarter pledge to help fund a small run of "The Lazy Leopard" a book she had both written and illustrated.

Bleeding London - We're in are you?

Bleeding London - We're in are you?

The London Region of the Royal Photographic Society is inviting Londoners, and visitors to the capital to participate in one of the most ambitious photo projects that the capital has ever seen – to photograph every street in London. Based on the Whitbread short-listed novel, Bleeding London by Geoff Nicholson ( the ultimate read for any London freak. Nicholson describes the enormousness and enormity of London with a mix of pleasure and disgust as the character Stuart walks every street in the trusty A-Z, crossing them out as he goes along!)

The RPS are challenging Londoners and visitors to follow in the footsteps of Stuart London and cover the entire A to Z documenting their journey as they go! One of our customers Jen Pedler - local resident and local historian has risen to that challenge and has now succeeded in photographing every street in N19. If that wasn't enough of a challenge she has been blogging about her journey with witty ramblings and musings about the streets she has walked. Her posts are packed with amusing insights, local information and historical references.

All mapped out

Scratch Map by Luckies

For the last 20 or so years - every now and then we get a puzzled stranger across our threshold asking if we sell maps!

Here is our edit of the very best gift maps in store and online.
