At Last, Official Maps of George R.R. Martin’s World, From Westeros to Qarth

We’ve seen some amazing maps of the lands of Westeros and Essos, from George R.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 createddetailedstylizedspoilery 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.

The Lands of Ice and Fire goes on sale October 30 from Random House, but you can check out some glimpses right here. These maps are the work of Jonathan Roberts, who shares mapping tips and tricks on Google+.

George R. R. Martin’s beloved Song of Ice and Fire series, which started with A Game of Thrones, is bursting with a variety and richness of landscapes-from bitter tundra to arid wasteland and everything in between-that provide a sense of scale unrivaled in contemporary fantasy. Now this dazzling set of maps, featuring original artwork from illustrator and cartographer Jonathan Roberts, transforms Martin’s epic saga into a world as fully realized as the one around us in THE LANDS OF ICE AND FIRE (On sale October 30, 2012).

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.

Never before has the entire scope of Martin’s universe been so exhaustively and fascinatingly depicted. The maps in this beautiful, one-of-a-kind atlas will enrich your reading or viewing experience, provide another view of your favorite characters’ epic journeys, and open up captivating new worlds-plus, they’ll look great on any castle wall.
