What began as a small promotional sticker featuring his home state of North Carolina as a slab of meat, graphic designer Jamie Reed soon re-imagined the entire US map as the United Steaks. Each state was rendered as a piece of meat with it’s major rivers and bodies of water shown as marbling. After a successful Kickstarter campaign, a limited three color screen printed poster was produced by The Half and Half in Columbia, SC.

In addition to the map, backers also received paper butchers hats & moleskin notebooks stamped with the United Steaks seal. If you missed out on this project, limited quantities of the map are still available at his shop. It’s sure to please any fan of meat, maps or the good ol’ USA.
