Our Story


south coast, our story, Lewes Map Store

We are Dorte Januszewski, photographer and digital marketing expert, and Malcolm Trollope-Davis, conceptual fine artist. We live happily, together with our son Alfie and black Labrador Ruby, 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 hometown. 

More recently Malcolm has completed the Brighton Map, a black & white and very detailed hand drawn manuscript style map. Both the Lewes and Brighton maps are now featured on a range of products, including art prints, colouring posters, greeting cards and tea towels.

We have selected a range of desirable homeware, accessories, jewellery, beauty products, ceramics, prints, and independent magazines and books, to complement our own collections, 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 artists and makers through a mutual love of simple, functional and beautiful designs. We’re proud to be part of the movement towards a more responsible consumerism and know our customers appreciate items which are ethically sourced.
