If Buffy The Vampire Slayer, Supernatural, or The X-Files taught me anything, it’s that there’s all sorts of weird shit throughout the USA. From weird fish people to werewolves, shapeshifters to firestarters, there are all sorts of strange and wondrous creatures scattered throughout this country.
That’s why this map from Hog Island Press is so cool! It takes the lower 48 states (sorry Alaska and Hawaii) and shows the creature that is most famous in each state, including the Jersey Devil, Bigfoot, Mothman, Chupacabra, Shunka Warakin, Caddy, and many more!
Loren Coleman, who is a cryptozoologist and author on the topic, states:
The cryptid-filled, cartographically accurate Monsters in America: A Cryptozoological Map of the United States should be on the walls of every museum, library, and researcher’s office interested in the science of as-yet-to-be-discovered animals. Hog Island Press has produced an informative, affordable, high quality collectible, which also serves as an educational tool useful for your next road trip, a future research trek, or everyday bibliographic study. There is not a fake on the map. I love the heavy paper stock. Discover and obtain yours today!
