What happened to Colombia and Peru?
João Pessoa would probably still be called Paraíba - it's named for a local governor who was assassinated in 1930. Florianópolis might also still be called (Nossa Senhora do) Desterro, it was renamed in 1893.
Does America have a bad rep like the USSR OTL or not?
Hey everyone, I’m back with another exclusive map from the print version of the People’s Socialist Atlas. It’s coming out in TWO DAYS, so get ready! It’s 400 pages of lore and maps I worked extremely hard on. I’m looking forward to releasing it to the world, and I hope you’ll buy it! The link to the website you can purchase it on will be posted on December 7th.
Today’s map is of India.
The print version of the atlas is dropping TOMORROW!!! Tomorrow, along with some more fun maps with the book, I’ll post a link to where you can finally buy it! It’s honestly nerve wracking, soon you’ll all get to see the amount of work I put into making this thing! Today’s map is of Canada, please enjoy and get excited for tomorrow!
Is there an e-version?
Great question! Probably just a paperback for the forseeable future, as ebooks are pretty easy to pirate.
will it be a limited run?
I'da bought one but I couldn't find the link...No wonder you cut back on AH.com, having to put this piece of work together!?
It’s not released yet!!! The link will come tomorrow, like I said in the post I made a few minutes ago!!!
Nope, buy it whenever!
Even though you will have left the forums, will you still be making books?
(And hopefully advertising it here?)
I mean, this is probably the one book I’ll make, I don’t have plans to turn this into a series. But sure, if I make another book, then I’ll advertise it here.
Woah! How did Bhutan became so expansionist?
And a part of me feels a bit off when looking at Canada Keeyikawe. Perhaps it's because I have some friends from Alberta, but it just feels not right when to see America's hat getting the Balkan treatment. I know the future Quebecois are both happy and sad at their state of affairs, but I wonder what their reactions are like if they have magical crystal balls to see our Canada.
also, no independent Bhopal? boo.
how many countries are there in the chines map? it kind of hard to read with all the capitals in the map.
Okay, so, after two and a half years of constant writing and mapmaking, this huge project has finally reached its end. "The People Have Spoken", the print version of the People's Socialist Atlas, is a 465-page book with over 110 pages of maps. I've spent the last few months staying up late to finish this, and I'm ultimately really proud of how it came out. I really hope you consider buying it! Click anywhere on this text to go to the website where you can buy the book.
Now, before I go away, I have a few more maps I'd like to exclusively share from the paperback version. Even with all the maps I've put online, there are still dozens left uncovered in the book, ones you'll have to buy the book to see!
Now, if you're wondering why the book is so expensive, it's for a few reasons. First of all, it's REALLY expensive to self-publish a paperback, and even at this high price, I'm getting next to no profit from this endeavor. Second of all, I would like to have my thousands of hours of time spent on this project repaid in any small amount I can. Regardless of how much money I make, I've enjoyed making maps for this community for the past few years, and I hope you enjoy this big, final project of mine. Thank you.
I really like the presentation of Japan. I didn't think I've seen anything close.
Fan of the thread, planning to pick up the book for Christmas.
First of all, I just want to say that all of these maps are simply amazing. I deeply admire the attention to detail that has obviously gone into building this world. That being said, I would like to point out that in your map of China the labels for the provinces Liaoxi (辽西) and Liaodong (辽东) seem to be switched up. These provinces are named for their position relative to the Liao River, with xi (西) meaning west and dong (东) meaning east. In your map Liaodong is west of Liaoxi, which seems to be incorrect. See https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Liaoxi
* I joined the alternatehistory.com forums back in 2012 (originally to read @DValdron's Green Antarctica) but lurked for six and a half years until now. This is my first post.
** I am intrigued that China now has access to the Sea of Japan via controlling both sides of the Tumen River.
