I'm looking for a qml file (or equivalent e.g. sld) to allow me to use QGIS to take OpenStreetMap data and produce paper maps. I'm re-asking this question (it was asked once or twice over a couple of years by other people) because I'm really surprised not to easily find such a thing already (I looked hard).
I have found Anita Graser's styles - which are good, but only style basic data like roads (and do so simply). I've successfully followed the directions for getting OSM data to work with. I've carried out some basic style editing successfully. I realise I could create my own styles for this purpose - but this seems like a very big job. I want a visually pleasing map taking into account most of the data available on OSM (i.e. not just streets, but tracks, paths, rivers, woods, lakes, buildings and so on). I'd have thought that there would be other people out there already doing the same... It seems odd to have to re-invent the wheel when both OSM and QGIS are open source / open data projects. I feel like maybe I've just missed the obvious repository of OSM qml files which resides out there on the internet somewhere if you know where to look.
Additional notes in response to query below...
Ideally I'm looking for a Mapnik style rendering of the OSM data, but any equivalent properly developed and complete style would be good.
At the moment the objective is to use this data to produce paper mapping, but simple use of the mapping as base data on which other geographic data can be displayed also requires a decent rendering. At work I use Ordnance Survey data completely styled to produce a full and very detailed UK map (the point being that I didn't have to design this styling, it came with the data). I realise that other tools exist for paper mapping, but the same issues tend to arise at one stage or another... I'm more or less successful in making the tool work for me in really basic terms, but to get to something visually useful I end up back with me either needing to re-invent a complete rendering style from scratch (beyond my skill), or encountering such a complex set of requirements for database setups or whatever that the process crashes and burns before I get anywhere useful. With a few more years of GIS experience I'll maybe be a database, CartoCSS (or whatever else) wizz... but until then I'm prevented from using the amazing resource that OSM provides by this one barrier.
Update (July 2015): Please note that I'm still looking for information on this, and given that I've just been informed that the question has had 2500 views in the last year clearly others are too.
