    Hello,
    I am a writer living in Brussels at the moment. I am writing a draft of a novel about a fantasy world in which people live right in the inversed earth: in the land that exist where now there is water. So I googled for an inversed map and found yours. I notice that not only you and other artists have fantasized with the same idea, but have also come out with excellent works of illustration. Congratulations! I don’t know when I will finish my novel, if ever do at all, but I’m thinking, for copy rights and other stuff in the future, because I need names for the lands where people live and it is likely that everybody who plays with the concept might arrive to similar toponimics, maybe we could collaborate and if I ever publish a novel it could come with one of your illustrations of inversed earth in the front or the back or inside of it. Just an idea. Thank you in advance! Gian

      Hi Gian,

      That sounds interesting. I’ve always thought an inverted world would be a good setting for a fantasy novel (and its spin-off as a movie or a television series). With the names of lands and seas, as you suggest, it will be likely that different people will come up with largely the same set of names, since most of them are quite obvious. Anyway, you don’t have to worry that I will sue you for having a Queen of Biscay, a Lake Britain or a Northland in your novel ūüôā So please keep me informed about the progress and let’s see if one of my illustrations could be useful for the book. Kindest regards, Frans
