Just in case it dies inside of a laminator, one photo more...

I think I have spent enough time on this map now...


  1. Wonderful! You really should do a high-resolution scan before laminating.

    Just curious -- what pen do you use for lettering? Also: what size/kind of paper is that? Have you tried going gridless?

  2. I will try to get a scan- but it is big- bigger than A3 anyway, so I don't know if I will find a big enough scanner.

    I used an 005 black Kuretake felt pen for the lettering, and a slightly bigger one in Dark Sepia- Faber Castell. I have used a 001 black felt pen before for really fine work, but I couldn't get one for this map...

  3. Have you thought of using a mylar sleeve instead of laminating? It would protect the art without permanently encasing it. Looks like the right size sleeve and backing board would be about US$5

    Regardless, it's a beautiful map.

  4. Thanks Steve- I had a look into that but decided against it- all of my other maps are laminated, and I want this done for tomorrow night's game. Interesting option though.

    Thanks Bob!

  5. The map is brilliant Ragnardbard and it was fun watching it develop.
