CHARLES Dickens, Isambard Kingdom Brunel, and even Arnold Schwarzenegger are some of the famous faces appearing on a range of Portsmouth inspired coffee cups.

Canvas Coffee Shop, a social enterprise which operates at Portsmouth and Southsea train station, has unveiled its new range of cup designs at a showcase.

The artwork was a collaborative project with graphic design and illustration brand I Love Dust, which has offices in Southsea and Brighton, and uses stamping to brand the cups.

Each of the 11 different character stamp designs has a connection with the history of Portsmouth.

Pravin Isram, cafe manager, said: ‘I’m personally quite excited about it all as this is just the beginning.

‘There’s a lot of history in the city which people don’t know about.’
