Perfect Liverpool Christmas Gift
The Shiverpool Ghost Map Poster & GhostCard
A hand drawn, illustrated map of Liverpool’s haunted heritage and folklore tales; drawn by internationally celebrated artist and master map maker, Stephen Walter and co- created with the Shiverpool team. The work spans, events from liverpool’s medieval past up to present day.
Folks who buy the map are invited to unlock the secrets of the City and perhaps use it as a spring-board to discover more… Did you know about the Bone Basher of Nelson Street? The Father of orthopaedic surgery… It was said to those with beautiful bones run for your life! Or, have you heard about the conniving Black Widows of Skirving St? Who had a penchant for plotting, poison and pound notes!
Or maybe a slice of the devil himself might take your fancy with the famous fable of our Will Mckenzie…Whatever your poison? Whether it’s history, haunted heritage or the artwork itself, there’s something here for everybody. A fabulous memento for lovers of Liverpool, a wicked pressie at Christmas or birthday mistreats or a great excuse to delve deeper into Liverpool’s exciting past.
“We knew Stephen’s work through his stunning Liverpool Map that still hangs in Bluecoat Chamber. Stephen Walter’s incredible body of work speaks for itself.
We were blown away by the detail, research and precision of Stephen’s works and so in a leap of faith, we wrote to him in 2017 and we organised a chat over the phone; we held a long discussion which ended up with an agreement to meet the artist at his London Studio to discuss the project.
Stephen’s connection with Liverpool following his incredible map of the city, created in 2008 was strong and following discussions about what we hoped to achieve and how the process would work between us, we were delighted that he accepted the challenge of bringing our vision for the Shiverpool map to life.
