From time to time, Printa – Budapest’s beloved printing studio and concept store – comes out with a collection of playful illustrations that present a selection of the splendid attractions of Budapest from a “Printa point of view”. This time, the delights of the Jewish Quarter, such as the city’s major synagogues and the stunning edifices of District VII, are displayed on a design map with graphic guides, and on postcards available online and at Printa’s shop on Rumbach Sebestyén Street.
Following the characteristic illustrations displaying the best thermal baths in Budapest in the “Printa’s Pest 2015” collection, now the newest release features prints presenting the city’s Jewish Quarter. Erzsébetváros has always been a significant religious, cultural, social and commercial center for Budapest’s Jewish community, despite it being transformed into a confined ghetto zone during World War II. This area today is hustling and bustling with bars, ruin pubs, synagogues, restaurants, and splendid sights. This spectacular quarter is the main motif of Printa’s new collection: a design map with playful graphics and postcards printed to present the most frequented sights of District VII from a new perspective.
The illustrations are available at the store and online.
