Hand Drawn Type

I was advised by my supervisor to create hand drawn type on my map for the title and a section of information on each building. I love that it is hand drawn because it has a more personal touch to it and in my opinion there is a more illustrated touch to  it. This is why I want to do hand drawn type and to have the title simple but lovely and the information too. I want to have the type light and just in black pen no colours as there is enough colours in the map and then the type will be overseen. I also want it to look slightly vintage and clean.

Here are some typography images I found that I found inspiring:

Some of my own sketches of typography:

The title would be “Walled City Map”
