We’ve reimagined London as it stood about the time the British were settling Jamestown in Her Majesty’s colony of Virginia from 1607. Our approach has been to use an architectural drawing technique in the streamlined art deco style popular in London in the decade before the start of World War II. The original view, looking at London’s skyline from the south side of the Thames, appeared as the frontispiece of Londinum Florentissima Britanniae Urbs; Toto Orbe Celeberrimum Emporium Que by Claes Visscher, 1616. The inaugural WILLIAMSBURG Mural Collection X Paul Montgomery re-envisions the rich design archive of Colonial Williamsburg the world's largest living history museum, within a modern sensibility. Sales of WILLIAMSBURG products support Colonial Williamsburg's missions of education, preservation, and engaged citizenship – That the future may learn from the past.
