Metroland print by Blue Print x Donald Short


Though perhaps not the most fashionable subject matter, Metroland is celebrated in this blue print by Donald Short.

Used to refer to the suburban areas to the north west of London served by the Metropolitan railway, the detached house used as a repeat in a print is typical of the housing built in such Metroland areas – often criticised for being too similar to each other and, well, a bit boring. 

It's livened up a bit here by using the cyanotype process that was commonly used to reproduce architectural plans or, in other words, the blueprint. 

A signed edition of 100, each print costs £30.
