I am currently working on a UK sea areas map. Inspiration for it is the BBC Radio4 shipping forecast. Named areas are Viking / North Utsire / South Utsire / Forties / Cromarty / Forth / Tyne / Dogger / Fisher / German Bight / Humber / Thames / Dover / Wight / Portland / Plymouth / Biscay / Trafalgar / FitzRoy / Sole / Lundy / Fastnet / Irish Sea / Shannon / Rockall / Malin / Hebrides / Bailey / Fair Isle / Faeroes / Southeast Iceland
Peter Jefferson's 'And now the shipping forecast' covers the subject from all angles. I also stumbled across this live ships map which tracks position of ships around the world.
Any feedback, (especially from mariners off UK's shores) is much appreciated.

I've always wanted to design covers for my favourite books. To start I chose Umberto Eco's The Name of the Rose. Lettering is inspired by medieval black letter and floral ornaments (interwoven rose stems with thorns) since the story is set in1327. For texture and colour I tried out different worn textile covers, leather and gold leaf (a bit OTT I know..). More about the book.
