Outline of the Post-War New World Map

Мечты, предсказания и правда о мыслях вождей мира … действительно можно «… raise a glass in memory of the craziest bastard…»

If you’ve never seen this map, you should. It’s called the Outline of the Post-War New World Map, and it was self-published in 1942 by one Maurice Gomberg of Philadelphia. Little is known about Mr. Gomberg, but the map he created is a grand testament to his complete insanity. Find a zoomed-in view and look for:

-the United States of America, which now has 80 states and includes Canada

-the United States of South America (like that would ever happen)

-the United States of Europe, which is made up of 12 countries and also France controls West Germany

-the USSR, which controls nearly all of Europe, Asia, and the Middle East

-“Quarantined Germany” and “Quarantined Japan”

-and my personal favourite, something called “Hebrewland” occupying the space of modern-day Israel. That’s not vaguely insulting to Jews at all, amirite?

This map is, simply put, gold. I don’t know where Mr. Gomberg is now, but I raise a glass in memory of the craziest bastard ever to become a cartographer.
