    Default Fictional map created for Scholastic Books

    Here's a recent map I was commissioned to create by Scholastic Books for the middle-grade novel "The Midnight Tunnel: A Suzanna Snow
    Mystery" by Angie Frasier. Just finished it and the book's due to be released early next year. It's a bit of a stylistic departure from my other maps but it works since the book's geared towards pre-teen girls.

    Let me know what you think.

    I like it - can definitely see your style in the grass and edges. Another great border too. Very nice indeed - any chance of a slightly larger version?

    Thanks - I love the play on the standard woodcut style that you've done with the sea and the waves. Very nice. Repped (of course!)

    Really nice map and I have to agree about Rosemount Mansion. I'm reading Jane Eyre at the moment and I can't help but think of Thornfield Hall.Repped.

    Yes lovely. I like the wood cut turning into waves on beach. Haven't seen that before and nice touch.
