Lost and Trying to Find: Maps of Alternate Views of the US

Postby worxman02 » Thu Aug 18, 2011 1:52 am UTC

Hey xkcd crowd,

I know that I have seen this image I'm searching for before, but I can't seem to find it again (my google-fu is failing me) and I didn't bookmark it.

I'm looking for a map of the US that shows how people from the east coast view the rest of the US and how people from the west coast view it. If i remember correctly, the east coast version of the map had all the states correct on the east coast and then somewhere after Pennsylvania it turns into the Midwest and the only west coast states are California and Seattle (ie. Washington state). Please help!! I will gladly pay a king's ransom in internet gold to the person who finds this for me.


Thanks!!

Well there's Saul Steinberg's 1976 New Yorker cover which shows the view west from 9th Avenue, but I haven't seen a West Coast version.

Yea, that's one of the first things I found. Its more of a real looking map showing the whole country. Thanks though!

You might get somewhere by image-searching "funny map of the usa". This was among the many results.
