Stylised Prints Of London's Lost Music Venues

Dorothy 0089 - Lost Destination - Astoria Web B

London's music venues come and go, making history before being swept away by it. These prints, created by art and design studio Dorothy, memorialise some of the ones that have helped make the music scene matter in our capital, but sadly no longer exist.

Part of the Lost Destination series, the new additions include the now-demolished London Astoria, which hosted some of the biggest bands of the last few decades including Nirvana and The Libertines, as well as hosting legendary LGBT new years eve parties with G-A-Y. Then there's Eel Pie Island Hotel, which was an iconic 1960s music venue played by bands like The Rolling Stones and The Who.

The designs take inspiration from the iconic travel posters of the first half of the 20th century: precise geometrical lines with stylised shades of colour. Prints cost £35+P&P, available in size 60x80cm.

These illustrated prints start from £35+P&P and are available from Dorothy’s website, as are the previous designs in the Lost Destination series of prints.
