Westeros and the surrounding lands are huge and richly developed. George R. R. Martin excels at world-building and nothing will make you appreciate that more than looking at the sheer amount of land A Song of Ice and Fire covers. There are the maps in the book of course, but thankfully The Lands of Ice and Fire official map collection is almost here.
The book will be out on October 30th, and it’s full of detailed maps including versions that show various character movements throughout the world – that’s something I’ve always wanted to see. Here’s a hint of what the collection offers:
The centerpiece of this gorgeous collection is guaranteed to be a must-have for any fan: the complete map of the known world, joining the lands of the Seven Kingdoms and the lands across the Narrow Sea for the first time in series history. But this is just one of many unique maps that aren’t available anywhere else. There is an alternate version that tracks the movements of the series’ protagonists throughout their vast world, along with more detailed versions of the western, middle, and eastern thirds of the world; a full map of Westeros, combining North and South; one of the Dothraki Sea and the Red Wastes; and the Braavos city map. And here, too, are fan favorites detailing everything from urban sprawl to untamed wilds: maps of King’s Landing; The Wall and Beyond the Wall; the Free Cities; and Slaver’s Bay, Valyria, and Sothyros.
