Two weeks ago, HBO aired the first episode of the new season of our favorite TV show these days: Game of Thrones. Since we already talked about the amazing map from the opening title, we decided to share this time the original maps of the books. After all they deserve part of the credits for making the books so popular.
The following maps are the work of Jeffrey L. Ward and James Sinclair (depending on the books) and are a remarkable work of fantasy style mapping. Traditionally epic fantasy book sagas like Game of Thrones or the Lord of The Rings, always have maps at the beginning of the book to help the reader place geographically the action. They sometime feature the journey of the heroes like the fellowship of the ring. It can also help the author create an interesting and richer universe for more options of adventures.
