You might’ve noticed that I’ve not really done much on the website of late. Not too much writing here either. That’s because I’ve been focusing on something else: I want to make the FFF Pictorial Atlas into a book.
This morning, I finished the first draft of that book. All 240-odd countries written about. Stuff about the oceans and weather and wars, too. Apart from the countries I’d already done on the website version, everything else was done in one big spurt over the past two months. I’ve still got to do the illustrations and maps, and I’ve still got to do a couple of re-writes, I think; but the basis for a book is there now. And I’m quite happy. All I need now is a publisher…
Anyway, like a nerd, I’ve been keeping a map of my daily progress, shown below as an animation.
(The animation was made a hell of a lot easier by using world66.com‘s nifty little tool.)
