This is an original illustrated map of Haringey, a borough of London, UK, inspired by decorative antique map prints and the designs of MacDonald Gill (1884-1947).
The entire design has been entirely hand-drawn and digitally coloured by the artist.
Its decoration scheme references the area's rich diversity, culture and history. The coat of arms at the top centre of the design is the official arms of the borough, whcih is flanked by shields representing (from left to right): the old county of Middlesex, of which the present area of Haringey was part of for centuries; and the old boroughs of Hornsey, Wood Green and Tottenham, which were merged to form Haringey in 1965. The two illustrations along the bottom show views of Alexandra Palace and Bruce Castle Museum, two prominent landmarks in the borough. The border decoration is inspired by the architectural motifs that decorate the facade of Alexandra Palace.
Neighbourhoods covered by the map include: Archway, Bounds Green, Bowes Park, Crouch End, Harringay, Highgate (part), Hornsey, Muswell Hill, Noel Park, Northumberland Park, Seven Sisters, Stamford Hill (part), Stroud Green, Tottenham, Turnpike Lane, West Green and Wood Green.
