Lost Destination is one of the series developed by Dorothy. In this case, they want to pay homage to those buildings in London that were important nodes of activity in the city once, but that have disappeared or gone unnoticed today.

A series of nostalgic prints developed by Dorothy and illustrated by Stephen Millership. They take inspiration from the iconic travel posters of the first half of the 20th century, celebrating the unique but often forgotten beauty of buildings and places that were once destinations in their own right but have since been either demolished or immersed in the everyday.

Dorothy’s team is open to suggestions. If there's a beautiful brute of a building in London that you love and think it deserves an illustration, you can submit your suggestion here. The winning proposal will be illustrated and sold on Dorothy store.

These are some of the illustrated buildings:

Forton Services.-

Designed by T.P. Bennett and Son and situated between junctions 32 and 33 of the M6 Motorway, Forton Services is most famous for its hexagonal concrete Pennine Tower. The tower, which was originally an American-style restaurant rumoured to be a favourite of The Beatles, closed to the public in 1989 and was granted grade II listed status in 2012. Forton services opened in January 1965. 50 years on they still serve a mean full English breakfast for £3.99.
