Folk lore

Late for Tuesday, but well get caught up,  Here's a map by social realist artist William Gropper to showcase the diversity of national myths and folk stories and was distributed abroad through the U.S. Department of State starting in 1946. (You can see it up close by clicking on the image below to arrive at a zoomable version, or by navigating to the map's page on the website of the Library of Congress..)
