The centenary of the 1919 Addison Act, which enable local authorities to build high quality housing for working people is celebrated in a series of illustrations by Emma Jones. Exhibited in the Sheffield Modern Architecture Weekender, the illustrations shine new light onto Sheffield’s rich legacy of social housing from 1920s estates at
Norwood, Brushes and Stubbin to world famous Park Hill.

Heavily inspired by nostalgia, music and architecture, Jones mainly works with collage, incorporating found imagery and ephemera into her work. She calls herself an “illustrator and paper hoarder” and is an avid collector of found images, funky textures, colours and knick knacks.

Her recent practice has been exploring animation through GIFs and short films, and she enjoys the collaborative work she has done over the past year.

"A collaborative project with fellow illustrator Jasmine Freemantle. Focussing on community reportage during the Covid-19 Lockdown. Tackling subject matter we don’t usually work with, we challenged ourselves to randomly select locations to draw to see the differences in the exact same places. Here I have shown my responses to the project."
