Below is a drawing for a black and white map I need for a book--size of page is 8.5 x 5.5. The era of the map is Victorian, and marks the journey of the character on a path. There are two towns, and the rest is woods and hills and a river. The scale of the map is a four-day journey of walking. The drawing provided below is general, but will need more details, including highlighting two homes by making them larger than the others. Those two homes will each have to have a steeple on them. We actually have Profantasy, but our difficulty is finding homes that are consistent with the Victorian era, plus a lack of skill. I will pay for the map, but I need to see what the person can do. Below is my email address to contact me, which has been altered as suggested so as to keep from being spammed. I like quality work that will be an asset to this self-published book.

We are trying to design a simple black and white map for a 5.5 x 8.5 book that is Victorian era. It has to show the path of the journey of a character. We bought Profantasy to attempt to make it, but there are no homes that look Victorian. Are Victorian images available anywhere? I would pay someone to make this map. Here is my email to contact me, disguised to avoid spamming.

Here is a drawing of what we need. You will see there are two small cities:

Welcome and thank you for your interest in finding a cartographer here.

We do have a Map making Request thread (http://www.cartographersguild.com/forumdisplay.php?51-Mapmaking-Requests) with a sticky at the top explaining the kind of details that are helpful in finding someone who can do this for you.
I'm sure an Admin will come along and move this soon to that area of the site but you may want to take a look at the sticky and make any adjustments to speed things along.

So when you say "Victorian style", do you mean something like this?
A Map of those Parishes in the Counties of Kent and Essex which lie within Twelve Miles of London (1795) (http://stock-images.antiqueprints.com/images/sm0213-east-london-map-1796-l.jpg)

The City of Bath (1837) (http://stock-images.antiqueprints.com/images/sm0192-Bath-plan-1810-l.jpg)

Plan of the Town with the situation of the Mineral Wells, at Cheltenham (1825) (http://stock-images.antiqueprints.com/images/sm0103-CheltPlan1825Fosbroke-l.jpg)
