There are plenty of graphics for "scrolls" that you can find, but most of them seem little more than loose sheets of paper or parchment. Before the invention of book binding, large documents weren't just big-ass pieces of paper, they were long scrolls wound around tubes for easier handling. Instead of turning pages, one would roll the tubes on both ends to read further into the document. I find this classical form of scrolls appealing, but couldn't find any free graphics for it. So I decided to do it myself, and came up with a method to create pictures of these rolls in GIMP. Here's one, which I offer for the free use of fellow cartographers.

I'm also planning on writing a tutorial with instructions for making your own parchment roll graphics like this one. Hopefully I can get around to posting it soon.
