Derry, the Town From Stephen King’s It, Has Been Recreated in a Stunning Model
Stephen King is known for creating towns and worlds that are as much of a character in his stories as the people and creatures that inhabit them. He breathes life into every street corner, gives history to every shop, and makes every element have purpose. Such is the case with Derry, the town he created in his short story The Bird and the Album which has also reappeared in Bag of Bones, Dreamcatcher, and, important to this story, It. There are multiple iconic destinations in Derry, such as 29 Neibolt Street, the Civic Center, the Canal, and much more, making this fictional town feel real and lived in.
Enter Kassiopeya Sachenwerkler, a German artist who created a stunning diorama that recreates not only the streets of Derry but also the insidious underbelly that is seen in It. The attention to detail and the level of craftsmanship is absolutely stunning and it has to be seen to be appreciated. I grabbed a few images which can be seen below but I highly recommend going to her site to see hi-res versions.
