Lukas Novotny

I’m an illustrator and multidisciplinary designer based in London. I also write stuff and do paper engineering.

Most recently I wrote and illustrated a book called Modern New York, which is published by Rizzoli in April 2023. My first book Modern London, published by White Lion, was shortlisted for the British Book Design Awards 2019.

BBC Radio London made an interview with me and some of my work was featured in TimeOut London, Czech Television, Londonist, Grand Designs magazine and more.

I’m always open for commissions. Drop me a line on or find me on social media – Instagram and Twitter.

Sign up for occasional email updates on my books, illustrations etc here.
