    Default DaVinci map

    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.

    Very cool. Thanks for posting that Jax. And Gidde I think that a LDV font would be very nice indeed

    Even if I am correct, I would still advise you to follow your heart. This whole Cartographers Guild thing, it seems to me, is more about passion and skill and learning new techniques than it is about definitions and rules.

    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!
