Looking for something else I happened across this map done by Leonardo Da Vinci of a town and I figured if it's never been posted here before you folks might want to check it out.

Great find! *wanders away thinking about how cool a font LDV's mirror writing would be*

One exists already. Can't think of its exact name but I remember seeing the physical CD for sale in a gift shop. The package included forwards and backwards writing.

Very neat! Is there a context why he chose Imola? I dont think he had any personal connection to it? Granted Im not a da Vinci expert though...
anyway, this map almost looks like its straight from google maps. Really amazing!
