Nice - but could've been done better
on 12 May 2012
I'm only giving this three stars because, frankly, it could've been designed a lot better than it was. Firstly, despite being a huge poster, it is surprisingly lacking in detail - the little maps at the beginning of the books show more detail! This poster leaves out a lot of the little towns and region names. The area north of the Wall is especially disappointing: nothing has been marked on this map! No Frostfangs, no Fist of the First Men, etc.
Secondly, while the font used for town names, etc. is clear and legible, the one used for natural features is stylized to the point of being unclear at times. Also, I think this map would've benefited from a bit more colour in places. I also wish it showed more of Essos (the lands on the eastern side of the Narrow Sea), although I know there's another map that shows that land in more detail, but then you lose detail on the Westerosi side.
