Poets of Rome

  • Save

Sometimes the things in life just sort of click together. Having just come back that month from a very memorable trip to Rome, I received an email from Culture Trip asking me if I would like to create a series of illustrations capturing the poetic and romantic appeal of — you guessed it — Rome. Wether be it a lucky coincidence, or a perfect alignment of the stars, I wasn't about to let an opportunity like this slide.

Specifically I was asked by to create illustrations for an article on why Rome was (and still is) so attractive to romantic English poets like Byron or Keats, in which I was supposed to portray Rome from its most poetic side.
