I have been hired to make some maps for a book on Africa.  I am working in Illustrator, so everything will be grayscale vector.  I need to show some mountain ranges, and am wondering if there are some generic cartographic mountain textures available? I would normally suggest mountains by using shaded relief in Photoshop, but I want to stay vector.
