Hog Island Press Releases a Cryptozoological Map of America

We really dig our monsters here in America so when we saw that Hog Island Press from Philadelphia, PA put out a "Monsters in America: A Cryptozoological Map of the United States" we had to share. The site describes the map as a "snapshot of American cryptozoology that brings together the Jersey Devil, Bigfoot, Mothman, Chupacabra, Shunka Warakin, Caddy, the Honey Island Swamp Monster and many more cryptids on one hand-drawn, hand-screened map."

Even cooler? Renowned cryptozoologist and Director of the International Cryptozoology Museum, Loren Coleman, gives mad props to the map by saying, "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!"

The screen printed 25 x 19" ltd. edition print sells for $25 and can be purchased by clicking here. Check it out below.

Thanks to Bloody Disgusting for the heads up on this cool item.
