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 --This text refers to the Hardcover edition.

George R. R. Martin is the #1 New York Times bestselling author of many novels, including the acclaimed series A Song of Ice and Fire—A Game of Thrones, A Clash of Kings, A Storm of Swords, A Feast for Crows, and A Dance with Dragons.

Jonathan Roberts grew up in a old farmhouse between a ruined castle and a Bronze Age fort, so lands of the imagination were never far away.

Along with his own illustration work for books and games, Roberts has curated New York gallery shows of maps by illustrators around the world.

First, THIS IS NOT A BOOK. From what I could grasp three months ago when I preordered that item, I expected something closer to an atlas comming with a large map of the 'known world' in the form. Instead, you get 12 large posters, each different.
The goods : the poster are of quality, with somewhat heavy and thick paper, and they didn't try to save space by folding them too much. The maps are really pretty, the lands depicted seems very realistic and you want to be there. Plus, the map of the known world shows area I've never seen on fan-made maps, which is cool.
The bads : you only get maps. I was looking foward for something like the Atlas of Middle-earth, which has been my best companion through the LOTR Atlas of Middle-earth
I was expecting some text, history, AND SOMETHING USEFUL FOR QUICK REFERENCE. If you want something to oriente yourself in this large world SOLELY, try this website and don't get the maps ([...]). If you have room to show the maps, they are very pretty and you can get up and take a quick look, but it is a pain to go from a map to one of the eleven others.
I can't really give less than 4 stars, because the product is of high quality. But consider what you really need: reference book, no; pretty and exhaustive maps, yes.
The big draw is the Easter continent that while described in the books has never received the map attention of Westeros. So be prepared for amazement and tons of questions that should be answered in the later book The World of Ice and Fire, which should be a bit more heavy on the detail and history than even the big white book from Robert Jordan.
I also love the map that outlines the "journeys" of so many POV characters! Very cool idea! Definitely recommend folks.

Arrived on time. Beautiful Maps. Wish I had them while reading the books. (I read the ebooks, so I could not easily flip to the maps provided as on a hardcover or paperback.Published 2 months ago by gsd1980
As is written on the cover, these are maps. No atlas here. Great maps, though! Nice to finally see all the places mentioned in the books. Read morePublished 7 months ago by Luc Pilon
Look great, but the maps are cumbersome, and not very practical. For example the trips of the characters could be much better represented. Read morePublished 10 months ago by Barna Puskas
