London Map of Days
The brainchild of Canadian-born, London-based artist, Mychael Barratt, A London Map of Days is a miscellany of facts and fictions arranged around the events and characters of our capital city. Based upon an original and very limited eight-plate etching by Mychael, which was shown at the Royal Academy Summer Exhibition in2015, the book features 366 date specific references to events or people throughout London’s history. Highlights include: 17 December 1849 the first bowler hat was created by Thomas and William Bowlers; 3 December 1976 Pink Floyd’s inflatable pig breaks free from Battersea Power Station; 11 November 1920 Cenotaph on Whitehall designed by Edwin Lutyens is unveiled on Armistice Day. By tweeting each element and its story on a daily basis from January 2015, Mychael’s work has gained an international following for his light-hearted look at the The Big Smoke’s fascinating history.
