Alternate Histories

We've been hearing a lot about alternate facts lately. Matthew Buchholz's book Alternate Histories of the World was released last October and couldn't be more primed for success. Buccholz adds a little alternative history to historic maps and posters for a hilarious effect. I have a thing for old maps, and combined with a macabre sense of humor, I really enjoy seeing additions like monsters and spaceships. Buchholz's website Alternate Histories sells reconfigured maps and cards. These would make great gifts for any history buff. Father's Day will be here before you know it.

The Dinosaurs of Hartford CT

Niagara Falls

A View of Brooklyn
Baltimore's Zombie Safe Areas
I think there are images from every state in the shop. You need one of these. But then, there are the cards.

On the Twelfth Day of Christmas
Robot Wedding
Robo Rabbi Hanukkah Card

And as if that's not enough, there is a Kickstarter project with 17 days left to create an album of Forbidden Sounds for a Future Age

I'm absolutely giddy.
