My Paper Geofiction #7

This is a map of a place whose name I can no longer decipher. I used to invent writing systems to go with my imaginary worlds, and this one, undocumented, is lost to time. It’s clearly inspired by Tolkien’s Elvish, but I doubt it’s in any way directly related.

The archipelago-of-islands is obviously drawing on LeGuin’s Earthsea, which I thought very highly of at the time. I’d estimate this was drawn around 1979. The rapidograph ink lines give away the period.
