Hand Drawn Map of Great Britain & Ireland
Hand Drawn Map of Great Britain & Ireland by Jenni Sparks
24" x 30" / 60.1cm x 76.2cm
For the first time, illustrator Jenni Sparks has mapped out England, Scotland, Wales and Ireland with her Hand Drawn Map of Great Britain & Ireland. Distilling the quirks and culture of Britain and Ireland with playful graphics, this map takes an in-depth tour of its many towns and cities. It dives into historic sites, like the Long Man of Wilmington, and legendary local landmarks, like Manchester’s Haçienda, handily organising areas around motorway and ferry routes.
The map derives from countless hours of research, trips, and tips from locals from across the Great Britain & Ireland. Compiling sports team rivalries, foodie destinations and strange folklore, Jenni has turned her findings into a stunning art print. Her artwork creates the definitive companion guide for a journey across Great Britain & Ireland, tapping into the personality behind its many faces and places with effortless humour.
Brought to life through Jenni’s elaborate drawing process, this map blends hundreds of isometric illustrations with 2D graphics to capture the details of Great Britain & Ireland. It also creatively represents each area with a unique typographic style.
More than solely a design must-have, Jenni’s new illustrated map has been drawn around motorway and ferry routes to help inspire the travel route for your next holiday in the Great Britain & Ireland.

From century-old institutions to Gloucester Services, each point of the map varies enjoyably in tone. Local in-jokes and popular culture icons – look out for Cilla Black and Rob (McElhenney) & Ryan (Reynolds) of Wrexham – can be found hidden within the illustrations.
