A Song of Ice and Fire Series by George R.R. Martin
George R. R. Martin on Sothoryos
We've seen some amazing maps of the lands of Westeros and Essos, from George R. Martin's A Song of Ice and Fire series. There are nifty maps in the front of every volume of Martin's series, but also fans have created detailed , stylized , spoilery and Easter Egg-filled cartographies. But now at last, there's an official collection of insanely detailed maps — with versions that track the movements of all the main characters through Martin's lands. We've got an exclusive first look, below. Click to enlarge:. George R.
The Known World of Ice and Fire [x] c1. Every time I see Essos its shape reminds me immediately of Turkey, as it does look very similar to Asia Minor in terms of geography. I'm here for the maps and known nothing of the books, but the main island is basically Britain upside down, so it's very possible the other half is a loosely altered asia minor. The main island is actually top to bottom Britain the right way up, plus enlarged Ireland upside down, plus deserty bit. Funny how Ireland is so perfect its basically a trace while Great Britain is almost unrecognisable. A lot of things in the GoT universe are based on real things.

The only thing I can complain about is that this package is too much! The maps are very large. Too large to handle easily. And there are too many maps to hang on your wall - if you live as I do in moderately sized rooms. The maps are beautiful and detailed, interesting and instructive. Du kanske gillar.
