Maps help up make sense of the world around us, and all the better if it leads to a hidden corner of London or a delicious bakery. 

Cierra Block

London Block by Block is run by Cierra Block. It was taking time out after she had had her daughter that gave her the time to create this gorgeous little printing business. As another of our Small British brands to support this year, we wanted to introduce London Block by Block.

Cierra spends her hours researching her map ideas. With all that content she then creates the beautiful visual guides of London and beyond on her IPad.

Cierra’s designs caught my eye a few years ago on her Instagram. I love that her guides vary from a Mince Pie guide (very important at this time of year) to a Park guide, a Pretty City guide to a pancake guide, a plant guide.. you name it, Cierra seems to have done it.

This year London Block by Block has an illustrated wall calendar with a variety of guides, in and out of London. Each guide inspires you to check out her tips – even the foodie ones.

Cierra is a brand I have loved supporting. Her cards make the perfect gift for thank you’s, or just a note to say I’m thinking of you. Something that has been so important in 2020.

Where can I find her guides and cards

London Block by Block is at Eccleston Yard’s Christmas market on Saturday 12 December. A small Christmas market in this beautiful hidden part of Belgravia is just the spot.
