Dorchester - A John Speed city
Following Ralf's most recent Live Mapping Session demonstrating the use of the his John Speed City style, published in the first Cartographer's Annual, I did this map this evening.
John Speed had actually done a map of this town - my county town, so I used that as a reference for the approximate shape and form of my own map.
This is the first map I've ever done in this style, and I enjoyed it enormously.
I hope you don't mind, Ralf, but I decided to add a parchment texture overlay...
