The file is of course in spherical mercator, so you will have to covnert the coordinates in someway.

If you have an old GDAL version (<1.7) this "works": ogr2ogr -f "ESRI Shapefile" borders_north.shp borders.shp -spat -180 0 180 90 It will not clip so if you have one big geometry you will still have to upgrade,

comment How do I rotate the OSM map before printing?
Hum, so no easy way to do this? Both of them are solutions but not really usable, we are talking hours of work to get a map rendered horizontally. Do you have examples of TextSymbolizer, and rotating Markers?
