Our Story


south coast, our story, Lewes Map Store


We are Dorte Januszewski, photographer and nature lover, and Malcolm Trollope-Davis, commercial artist and illustrator, and we live happily, together with our son, in Lewes, East Sussex. We established Lewes Map Store to build on the success of Lewes Map, a 3-D style illustration beautifully hand-drawn by Malcolm who found inspiration in the charm and rich history of our town. Available as limited edition prints, fine bone china mugs, screen-printed tea towels and stationery, the Lewes Map is a visually intricate blend of the contemporary and historical. It is this timeless quality we seek to reflect in the Lewes Map Store gift collection.

We have selected a range of desirable homeware, accessories, jewellery, beauty products, ceramics, prints, independent magazines and books, to complement our Lewes Map products, for you to cherish or give as gifts. On our journey to bring to our customers only the items we truly admire, we have connected with suppliers through a mutual love of simple, functional, beautiful designs. We feel strongly about supporting the UK’s small production manufacturers, people who put care and skill into their goods. We’re proud to be part of the movement towards a more responsible consumerism and know our customers appreciate durable quality, not throwaway, seasonal trends.

When we’re not busy fulfilling orders for Lewes Map Store, or exploring the Sussex countryside to capture its beauty, we’re researching new products which celebrate traditional craftsmanship. If you have a product you think matches our philosophy, or are interested in what we do and would like to find out more then please contact us.
