    I am currently creating a antique looking US map for a book publisher to go with a book soon to come out and I am in dire need of any suggestions on what font to use. I suck much ass at creating my own typography...not the best area of my graphic education. I've been looking at old western style fonts but any suggestions or links or emails with the font included would be hella-cool. BTW i use a MAC.

    thanks!

    Ahh fonts... I love em as much as I hate them. Script fonts can get tough to read. Consider size and readability. Maybe handwritten would be the way to go. It may give the map a more authentic feel. Of course make sure you have all the parts. Bad fonts can kill a job.

    Papyrus looks pretty much like hand printed with old ink if you get the color right.
