One of the best accompanying things to any well constructed fantasy story and world is a map. The universe created by George R.R. Martin in A Song of Ice and Fire, mostly known as a Game of Thrones, has some beautiful maps.
The Game of Thrones Maps come in all shapes and sizes, differing in detail and focus: Westeros alone, parts of Essos, all of Essos, and perhaps the entire world. You choose what best suits your style, preferences and home or office:
Game of Thrones Giant Map of Westeros & Essos
The size of his beautiful map, which shows Westeros in all its glory from the beautiful south to the wonderful north, and Essos in all of its encompassing massiveness, is 55″ x 39″.
Game of Thrones Antique Style Map of Westeros & Essos
For those who like their maps to have the hand-made kind of look, comes this Westeros & Essos map, which makes every detail come together to look like beautifully drawn trees on a canvas. It comes in two sizes: 36×24 and 55×39.
Game of Thrones Vintage Paper World Map
The awesome addition in this map is the house sigils surrounding Westeros and Essos, complementing the vintage style. It’s size is 28×20.
Game of Thrones Map of Westeros & the Free Cities
A map that zooms in a bit into Westeros and the Western part of Essos, which consists of the nine free cities, before the more exotic part of the Planetos unfolds. The free cities, for those who don’t know, are Braavos, Pentos, Lorath, Lys, Myr, Tyrosh, Qohor, Norvos and Volantis.
Game of Thrones Westeros Houses Map in Color
This colorful map, focusing on Westeros and its great houses (Targaryens, Martells, Baratheons, Arryns, Tyrells, Tullys, Greyjoys, Starks and Lannisters) comes in two sizes: 16×13 and 28×24.
Game of Thrones TV Opening Map
For those who absolutely love the Game of Thrones opening (and it is awesome) but care less for the actual map details, this is perfection.
Game of Thrones Full Planetos Map
This is basically the biggest map in the ASOIAF universe, including the Shivering, Jade, Narrow and Summer Sea, with Westeros, Essos, Sothoryos and what may or may not be Ulthos. It’s 24×27 in size.
Game of Thrones Minimalistic Map
For those people who like it simple, this is Westeros, and just a bit of Essos, down to its bare essentials, which is actually part of its charm. Not massive, but pretty, and fits a certain home decor.
Game of Thrones Topographic Westeros Map
I love maps that give you a 3-dimensional sense, and this topographic map of Westeros really brings out the differences between the 7 kingdoms, and how massive and varied the world George RR Martin created actually is. It’s 31×14 in size.
Game of Thrones Black & White Map
This black & white map of Westeros, Essos and a bit of Sothoryos reminds me of old DOS games about global warfare between nations, something along the lines of Dictator. It comes in select sizes, from 5” x 7” up to 20″ x 30″.
