The art of cartography features heavily in the work of Icelandic born artist Kristjana S Williams. With a keen eye for Victorian art and illustration, Williams has mastered a blending of the old world with the new: using modern printing techniques, Williams reimagines the art of the past with a twenty-first century flare, creating unique and strikingly beautiful prints. In ‘Alexandra Jardine World Map’ Williams recreates a nineteenth century style map with her characteristic use of carefully detailed natural history images. The world is etched in monochrome and overlaid with richly coloured birds, butterflies and mammals from across the globe. Williams has vividly translated the scientific Victorian arts of cartography and natural history into a beautiful, modern day aesthetic. This print is signed and numbered by the artist.
