    So, here's where I'm at with this one. I've stuck strictly to the Scorching Sun annual - with the exception of the font. You'll all get a regular old font on this. This is a download I got off one of my favorite sites. It's called XXII-Arabian-OneNightStand :)

    Love the map, Lorelei. And I now have the font, so I can see the font as illustrated, rather than just the regular font. Thanks for sharing the font info

    This is beautiful. I love the colors and the play of the light on the mountains.

    I can see the sandworms of Arrakis somewhere there!

    So here's the final map....I wanted this map to be all in the Scorched Sun style, however below I added a frame made with a Bogie fill if anyone is interested. I just thought it presented nicely in the frame :) But hey, that's just me and my aesthetic. Anyway, unless anyone has any suggestions, i'll send this one in (minus the frame) to Remy tomorrow. Thanks all.

    I like the frame. It has a nice "Arabian Nights' feel to it.

    This is really, really beautiful. Amazing work!

    Just one little thing: The text below the Scale bar looks a bit odd. Maybe it is because the text is to small to see the characteristics of the font in this view. But I'd probably go for a more subtle font for this text.

    What a pity the frame cannot be used in the atlas - I thought if it was a Bogies fill, you could.

    Oh, of course, it can. I was trying to complete this map using ONLY the annual - believe me, it was killing me that i couldn't tap into other symbols and fills that i felt this style lacked a bit of. But I wanted to really stick with the one style (for a change, lol). Of course, if you like the frame that much, i can certainly share it with you. I think such a garish frame would be distracting from the "somewhat" continuity of the atlas - and i don't believe there are any framed maps, and if so, they are so subtle, i don't recall them

    Thank you for your critiques and compliments - as usual, they are much appreciated ;)
