    Default "Coast Lines"?

    Hello,

    So I am working on a quick map here while I am busy with study, and I wanna do some perpendicular lines, or something like that , on my coast (You'll probably understand it better if you take a look at the picture). I remember I saw how to do it on a tutorial here, but it was a long time ago and I can't remember the tutorial nor find the tutorial.

    So the question is, Does anyone here know the link to the tutorial, or at least who made it? If anyone knows how to do it and wnat to explain I would be grateful the same way

    well, there is this one, this one, or even this one.

    Have fun

    **EDIT**
    BTW, I believe the proper term for those lines is "woodcut"

    To be more precise, lines of that type frequently appear on woodcut maps. The original technique was to carve the map into a flat piece of wood, ink it and press the wood to paper in order to create prints. The style remained popular with metal engravers also, however. I have a replica print of a map by John Speed from 1610 that shows such coastal lines.

    Oh, interesting. And it does make sense because drawing the same map over and over again would be a lot of work, I'll look for some more info about it. I really like old style maps, or just old maps, and to know about they were done
