Source of very useful fonts for maps



I just thought I'd mention that here on Tom Mouat's site: http://www.mapsymbs.com/fontstuf.html is a very useful source of mapping fonts, especially the Map Icon font and the Napoleonic font.

At the bottom is what's on the Napoleonic font (very useful for maps/plans of battle reports):

And at the top is what's on the Map Icons font.

They're missing a lot of the specific period Central European/German items on which I'm working but it does mean I don't necessarily have to cover everything (unless the energy and urge strike, of course! :-)).
