    Map Lessonde

    This started as a simple one-day experiment and I liked it enough to spend two more days labeling and one more day tweaking the colors. Enjoy.

    Awesome, as always. Love those rivers up in the north...they almost look "vascular" to me. The mountains are pretty interesting too.

    Oh yeah, forgot the fonts - sorry bout that.

    Chappel Text - title.
    Black Chancery - nations.
    Bodacious-Normal - cities. I don't recommend using this but instead would advise using Calligrapher. Bodacious has some major kerning issues with ie and al combinations. I didn't scroll down my list fonts far enough or I would have used Calligrapher myself and my names would all have been different. You'll notice I have no ie or al words. There was one other issue but I don't remember what it was.
    Amerigo BT - terrain features.

    Another day another wonderful map from the Ascension.

    I love the way your style is progressing.
