all maps by David Cauguil


This map is in correspondence with the Spanish edition of Donald Ray Pollock's novel, Knockemstiff. David was commissioned to create the cover and some interior illustrations. He says, "For the map, I wanted to capture and interpret the wonderful visual strength contained in those stories and characters. I also wanted to provide the Spanish reader with the opportunity to see how stuff that appears in the book looks in real life (Pabst Blue Ribbon beer, the Dodge Super Bee, Old Grand-Dad whiskey, etc.). All of them icons in American popular culture and strongly present in its collective imagination, so I decided to draw an 'iconographic' map, as you will see." Larger version
