    Nice job. Every time I look through my book of Italy maps I want to do this, but then i sit down and try drawing them by hand instead

    yay for distractions!

    Thank you very much, to all. Well I hope I find a good scan of the Mountain maps of Switzerland so I can add the Mountains to the Brushset soon.
    I have seen a lot people try to adapt Blaeus style, so why dont just used them? Its copyrightfree since 1890 anyway and he took mapf of Gerhad Mercator and others anyway, so dont say remix-culture is a modern thing , ha!

    Hi Coyotemax, if you have some interesting maps, you could send me them and I convert them into brushsets!
