That Landliebe font is very intriguing! I'm really tempted to replace all the mistral with that one The style of those decadence fonts remind me a lot of the fell type fonts I used on another map I did. However, I think the crappy printing press style is too old looking for a map that is supposed to look like it could have been made during the early 19th century of Earth. So I'm going to stick with Baskerville for the type face text on the map, which is definitely authentic for that period
That Landliebe font looks very intriguing, thanks for bringing that to my attention. It's very tempting to replace as the Mistral with that one The style of the decadence fonts reminds me of the Fell type fonts I used in another map. However, the world is intended have a history that very closely parallels Earth, so I'm going to stick with the Baskerville for the regular type faces on the map.
Hi Bill, thanks for the comments I'm not *actively* working on it at the moment, but I've been staring it again lately after a (really long) break, so I anticipate that I'll be doing more work on it again before too long. I chose to use the Mistral font because it has a slightly messy look to it - I want those parts of the text to look more hand-written, whereas most cursive fonts (like the ones you suggested) are just too neat and tidy looking.
Although, now that I think about it, all my work on the text to date was before I bought my tablet, maybe I'll make my own font.
Thanks again for your thought-provoking comments
you asked me how I made these mountains in my 19th century style map ( http://www.cartographersguild.com/sh...map-of-Caeruin ).
I wrote that almost everything was done with paths. This applies also to the mountains. How exactly I proceeded there, I'll post in the thread (no later than tomorrow).
thanks for the rep
