Sherlock Holmes Exhibition Case Study

The Original Book Works at Sherlock Holmes Exhibition, Museum of London 

This year the Museum of London, welcomes a moving new exhibition! Exploring into the mind of the world’s most famous fictional detective; Arthur Conan Doyle’s Sherlock Holmes - London’s first detective since 1951.

Who is Sherlock Holmes, and why does he still conjure up such enduring fascination? This major exhibition will explore how Sherlock Holmes has transcended literature onto stage and screen continuing to attract huge audiences to this day. 

Touching beyond film and fiction, visitors to the museum will be transported to the real Victorian London – the backdrop for many of Conan Doyle’s stories. Through early film, photography, paintings and original artefacts, the exhibition will recreate the atmosphere of Sherlock’s London.

Visitors will be able to envisage the places that the detective visited and imagine they are standing on the pavement of the Strand watching the horse drawn traffic pass by.

The Museum of London has discovered our personalised Faux Books for their Sherlock Holmes exhibition.

Having done such a major project for the Museum of London which has just opened a special exhibition on Sherlock Holmes ‘The Man Who Never Lived and Will Never Die’, the illusion is complete on entering the Sherlock Holmes exhibition - with Faux Books from The Original Book Works. Hidden doors and false books, supplied by The Original Book Works, have been used to interpret this amazing exhibition.
