We LOVE a good map in our books. They help define the worlds our stories live in, sometimes shaping them, and helping us follow the journeys of our characters. Especially with sweeping fantasy epics where you often have a cast of hundreds and events spanning continents, such as Jennifer Fallon’s Tide Lords series or George R.R. Martin’s A Song of Ice and Fire.
So it must be said that a few key Voyagers were VERY excited to get their mittens on the latest ASOIAF book ( no, sorry, its not Winds of Winter! ), The Lands of Ice and Fire, which is actually a collection of 12 large ( A2 we think ) maps of the continents of George R.R. Martin’s world, from well-mapped Westeros. home of the Seven Kingdoms, to never before depicted maps of the lands Eastern Essos beyond Qarth and detailed maps of the city of King’s Landing.
Perfect for fans of both the books and the Game of Thrones HBO show ( whose map title/intro, it must be said, is also fantastic ), its also a beautiful collection of artwork too. What’s your favourite fantasy map? Have you ever made one yourself? ( Share it in the Forums! hint.hint.)
