I'm in the process of designing an old map (18th or 19th century) and I would like it to look worn out. But then I was wondering where it should be more damaged. I would prefer to avoid damaging the map randomly. The map would be folded, so I expect to have signs of wear (cracks) where it folds.
Where here else should the map be damaged?
- It was used as a reference document, probably in a library.
- It was not burned or affected by water, except for ambient humidity.
- The copy I'm making is made in Photoshop.
Examples, even if it's not a map:
