    Question Inspiration: Borders

    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:
    Cruzamento De Rio (River Crossing)
    New Dawn of the West (Terrain View)


    What' i would suggest though, is look through the thumbnail collection here:
    http://www.cartographersguild.com/ut...nishedMaps.htm

    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.
