Whether you're from a small town or a big city, it's the little things that make your state so memorable. Alison Hardcastle's hand-lettered map was created to conjure fond memories of locations from coast to coast by replacing the names of the states with familiar events, historical figures, landmarks, objects, foods, and other playful tidbits that relate to the part of the state where the word is located. Display it to show a bit of small-state pride or challenge family and friends to identify all fifty states based on the good-humored morsels of national trivia. Made in the United Kingdom.
