Shakespeare's London Travel Leaflet

A few years ago, I made a special trip to London to do research for a couple of projects, of which this was one of them.   After having done research in books and on the internet, I specifically sought out locations associated with William Shakespeare and his time.  London being such a large and diverse city I also naturally stumbled on some places by chance.

 

I created a leaflet inspired by these places which has an atmospheric illustration on one side and practical information on the reverse.   I noticed in my research of travel illustration that a lot of work didn’t particularly reflect the city’s atmosphere, but more just features of the city. This is why I really wanted to create a travel brochure/pamphlet that gave an atmospheric view of the city and it’s past.
