Adorably detailed, the Owen Gatley Map Series provides a chic guide to one’s favorite cities. The drawings were crafted by UK illustrator Owen Gatley, who is currently living in Berlin and producing phenomenal freelance work. This series of maps is Gatley’s most recently published work, and it was created for the publication Ideas Illustrated’s ‘Luck’ Issue. The magazine’s pages were filled with the beautiful illustrations of New York, London and Paris.

Each of the maps capture the varying spirits of the city, from the pastel and italicized script of Paris to the edgier grit of New York. The maps illustrate the very best of the cities, highlighting architecture and cultural landmarks. But, they also integrate pop cultural references. For example, the map of London shows the infamous Baker St. home to Sir Arthur Conan Doyle’s Sherlock Holmes.

The somewhat insightful but mostly playful series is a great way to imagine these iconic cities.
