Book Description

8 Nov 2012 Song of Ice & Fire

A 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.

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 unrivalled in contemporary fantasy.

The centrepiece of this gorgeous map 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 favourites 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 favourite characters’ epic journeys, and open up captivating new worlds – plus, they’ll look great on any castle wall.

Product Description

Review

Praise for A Song of Ice and Fire

‘After five volumes Martin is, if anything, a better writer than when he started. If you're watching A Game of Thrones on HBO, you're foregoing the great pleasure of Martin's deft prose…’
Time Magazine

'A Game of Thrones has captured the imaginations of millions for the same reason the archetypal dramas of Homer, Sophocles or Shakespeare have lasted for millennia. They show us the conflict between self-sacrifice and self-interest, between the human spirit and the human ego, between good and evil. And when we look up from the page we recognise those same conflicts in the world around us and in ourselves'
The Guardian

‘It is hard to accept that something that enormous and that popular is as good as people tell you it is’
Independent

‘A Game of Thrones grabs hold and won’t let go. It’s brilliant.’
Robert Jordan

‘Colossal, staggering… Martin captures all the intoxicating complexity of the Wars of the Roses or Imperial Rome in his imaginary world… one of the greats of fantasy literature.’
SFX

‘Fantasy literature has never shied away from grandeur, but the sheer-mind-boggling scope of this epic has sent other fantasy writers away shaking their heads… Its ambition: to construct the Twelve Caesars of fantasy fiction, with characters so venomous they could eat the Borgias.’
Guardian

‘Such a splendid tale. I couldn’t stop till I’d finished and it was dawn.’
Anne McCaffrey

By A. Whitehead TOP 500 REVIEWER VINE VOICE
Format:Hardcover
Okay, this is going to be a bit of a non-review because you probably already know if you are going to be getting this or not. Basically, it's a collection of full-colour maps of Westeros and Essos, the two continents which form the setting for the Song of Ice and Fire novels by George R.R. Martin. Either you're going to go, "Hey, awesome! I'm all in!" or be running away screaming for fear of being infected with Nerditis.

The map collection comes in a smart but somewhat non-durable folder. Don't put anything on top of it for long, as it really cannot support much in the way of weight. There's a single pull-out piece of paper with marketing speak on it (more or less the same as the blurb on the back ) and that's it for any kind of textual accompaniment. Those familiar with John Howe's excellent Tolkien maps, or the maps accompanying Terry Pratchett's Discworld books, will likely find this disappointing as those maps were accompanied by small booklets packed with geographical information (and in the Pratchett case, new canon material on geography). As it stands, we will have to wait another year for The World of Ice and Fire to clarify some of the new locations on these maps, and even then only some will be covered.

There are twelve maps drawn by Jonathan Roberts, each measuring 61cm x 92cm in size. There is a large map of the known world, which then has three larger, blown-up versions accompanying it, dubbed 'The West', 'Central Essos' and 'The East'. There are then larger-scaled-still maps of Westeros, Beyond the Wall, the Free Cities, Slaver's Bay and the Dothraki Sea. There are city maps of King's Landing and Braavos, and rounding off the set is a map called 'Journeys', which tracks the movements of the major POV characters across the five novels published to date.

4.0 out of 5 stars If you're undecided on buying this... 7 Feb 2013
By LMJR
Format:Hardcover|Verified Purchase
I took my time in deciding whether to purchase this or not, mainly because of the few criticisms I read here, and the fact I had not seen this in a store to get an idea of what it was like. What made me finally buy this was due to digging around the internet and thankfully there are some videos of people on Youtube opening up The Lands of Ice and Fire and I did not fault the book. So if you're like me who wants a `try before you buy' I would highly recommend looking these up beforehand.

Already expecting the content I was still impressed overall, despite being a diehard fan of maps and cartography filled with dense material that may not be easy on the eye to everyone. These maps are very appealing and compared to the more complex and jam packed maps I enjoy reading, these seem a little cartoonish. However, this is not a bad thing as the illustrations of the major monuments (in the Westeros map, for example) and the bright colours work really well.

I suspect there will be two types of people wanting this - those who have read the books so far and those who currently are or waiting to. For those already up to date on the books like myself, I found the maps more as a scale of distance and reference point for characters than anything else. For example I never realised the sheer scale of Dany's movements. Additionally it was great to finally scale up how far away certain lands were such as Asshai. When reading the books without this it can be a little daunting trying to keep up with locations (I found the tricky-to-pronounce names in Essos hard to place). If you're still reading through the books then these would be a great addition to have as a reminder of where places are that are out of reach in the little maps in the actual books...

...but not the Westeros map.

2.0 out of 5 stars Nice maps. Poor presentation. 9 Nov 2012
Format:Poster|Verified Purchase
I was expecting an Atlas, an atlas of maps. Instead, this is a collection of posters, something the original description did not make clear. The maps are very nice, but the production quality is poor: the 'hardback' cover is not very substantial and the maps are printed on thick glossy paper with multiple folds and will rapidly deteriorate if taken out, opened, and placed back into the book too often, perhaps, judging the difficulty I've had with one, immediately.

This book is sadly a rip-off and should be avoided. It gains stars for the artwork, loses them for the cheap badly designed over-priced packaging.

4.0 out of 5 stars Excellent! 16 Nov 2012
Format:Hardcover
I'm not quite sure why there's so much hate from the other reviewers regarding this product, I'm extremely happy with my purchase. Some people seem disappointed that this is not an atlas, but in fact a series of 12 posters, so please ensure you read the product description before purchasing!

Some of the complaints made by other reviewers are perfectly valid. The maps are printed on thick glossy paper (not cheap at all!), which unfortunately means that they don't like being folded and unfolded. I'd suggest placing them in a portfolio, or rolling them up in a poster tube, if you're especially worried about them.

The 12 maps are 24" x 36" (just over A1 size) and come folded in up in a handsome case. The maps included are:

- The Known World: Stretching from Westeros to Asshai (finally!)

Main Regions:
- Westeros
- The Free Cities
- The East

You also get a slightly "zoomed out" versions of the above:
- The West (featuring Westeros, the Free Cities and the Summer Isles)
- A map of Central Essos

And there are three "zoomed in" detailed maps:
- Lands Beyond the Wall
- Slaver's Bay region, including Valyria and northern part of Sothoros continent
- The Dothraki Sea

There are two city maps:
- A city map of King's Landing
- A city map of Braavos

Finally there's a "Journeys" map, which shows the paths traveled by all the major characters.

The maps themselves are beautiful, and the printing is very high quality. Maps have never been a strong point of A Song of Ice Fire, with the maps included in the books lacking in detail, and sometimes clashing with descriptions in the book(!).
