Buzzards Bay

This was the first piece of sample art I made using our Surveyor typeface, after it was completed. Since the fonts are based on engraved map lettering, I couldn't resist; I chose Buzzards Bay because it had a nice mix of coastal towns and inlets, in which I could use the italics and romans, respectively.

A few residents have mentioned geographic errors, of which I'm sure there are more than a few: this one's based on an engraved original that's probably about 140 years old. Anyway, enjoy!
