Illustrator Eleanor Crow captures east London's cafes with charm and skill

Posted by Rob Alderson,

Us Brits are often contrasted unfavourably with our continental counterparts as regards our cafe culture, but illustrator Eleanor Crow has shown that east London has an eatery scene to be proud of. She has lovingly drawn the diverse array of establishments – from tea shops to snack bars – in this part of the world and imbued each with a real sense of character reflecting their individual identities. And with some great lettering on display it’s a particular treat for anyone of a design bent, as well as anyone who respects a decent cup of tea.
