I am searching for some different style of borders for an overland map. I would love if someone good point me to maps with great borders both here in CG or other places. The style I am looking for is fantasy/medieval.

I have fun with borders, as you can see from these:

What' i would suggest though, is look through the thumbnail collection here:

There's a lot of maps with no borders, but if you skim through there you may find a few you like, then follow to the thread and check with the original author :)

Other than that, what I typically do is head over to google images, and type in "antique maps" or something similar and see what catches my eye.
