    Thanks! I can't take too much credit, though, the borders and corners were cleaned up, edited, and re-purposed from a set of different woodcuts and vintage maps I have saved. I wanted to get in the ballpark with the look and don't have any illustration skill myself.

    Regardless, I'm happy with them thus far.

    And the project keeps rolling along. Some minor tweaks to the landmass and I'm finally very happy with the layout of the continent. I think part of it is that I've finally been able to nail down exactly all the general/larger cultures and states that will make up things.

    Moving forward, I'm going to be separating this project into two different maps:

    1. A satellite-like shaded relief map. Focus is on realism and a modern, National Geographic-esque style of presentation. I'd like to use this map to locate major cities, trade routes and goods, geographic features, and political labels.

    2. More of an "antique" fantasy map. I may or may not use the shaded relief topography I've come up with. That design element is still up in the air, but this will be more of a classic woodcut and ink with borders on parchment style that has already been displayed recently in this thread.

    Here's the modern atlas so far. Text styles are a mess, there are no rivers, and the land texture and topographic/relief overlay still needs a lot of work. Everything needs a lot of work, really.
