A Better Class of Fantasy Map

Fantasy novelist Saladin Ahmed has put out a request for a high-quality map for his upcoming series. “Now. DAW’s in-house person can provide a very serviceable, basic, black-and-white line map. I love my publisher to death and have zero complaints about their plans for the book. But. Truth be told, I would love for the map to move beyond utility and help contribute to teh splashery first impressions.” He’s already gotten enough requests for his needs and as such does not need any signal boosting on my part, but I make a note of it for future reference all the same. I may at some point return to the topic of fantasy novel maps, the quality of those “serviceable, basic, black-and-white” line maps, and what a better class of fantasy map would look like.
