The Collage Atlas

Entrant 2021

John William Evelyn


The Collage Atlas invites you on a journey through an entirely hand-drawn picture-book dream-world.

From the grass beneath your feet, to the butterflies dancing in the air, to the floating islands drifting overhead - every little detail has been lovingly-crafted with pen & ink on paper.

At its heart is a journey exploring agency, memory, and hope. But so much more awaits those that venture off the beaten-path, with dozens of secrets tucked away in all corners of the world…waiting to be discovered.

Through your efforts, forests will grow, flowers will bloom, structures will rise…and airships will fly.

"Though light may fail,
And rain may fall,
Have heart.
There are still ways ahead.
But where to begin?"
