If America Were Middle-Earth

Reddit user ‘Jvlivs’ created this hand-drawn map of the United States of America, in the style of JRR Tolkien’s Middle-Earth cartography maps from The Lord of the Rings.

Jvlivs took artistic license with his creation, breaking the U.S. into six distinct regions, similar to Gondor, Mordor, Rohan, etc. With the help of some friends on Reddit, his original drawing was edited to look like aged parchment.
