Have you always dreamed of taking a road trip across the United States, but you don’t have the time? If so, hang up a copy of the USA Song Map in your home! Based on a vintage-style map, this litho print reimagines the names of states, cities, rivers, mountains, and even landmarks across the United States as the titles of over 900 famous songs. New York is renamed “Autumn in New York” after the famous song by Billie Holiday; Alabama is called “Sweet Home Alabama” after Lynyrd Skynyrd’s catchy tune; and California is tagged “California Girls” after the beloved Beach Boys track.
Likewise, the World Song Map is inspired by vintage world wall maps from the 1950s and reimagines the entire world with the titles of over 1,000 famous songs. Family and friends will enjoy jumping on the myriad of hidden achievements with the geography of our world. The United States, for example, is renamed “Born in the USA” (Bruce Springsteen’s hit), the United Kingdom is called “Anarchy in the UK” (made famous by the Sex Pistols), and Russia is labeled “Back in the USSR” (an iconic Beatles track).
On the other hand, if you’re shopping for a movie buff, the Movie Map Poster might be just the thing for you.
