Lost in a Whole Old World


I’ve been reading George R.R.Martin since the start of the new year. It all began when I was gifted A Clash of Kings from Anjana for Christmas (Secret Santa). I started reading it, realized I loved it, and immediately downloaded the first book in the series – A Game of Thrones.

I am now just completely lost in this beautiful, fantastical, and often violent world that George R.R.Martin has created.

What I don’t like though is the dreary, black-and-white, small print maps that are available with the books themselves. So, I was thrilled when I saw these beautiful images on Kitkat Pecson’s site – maps of Westeros and Essos.

I love these maps, such lovely art-work, and just perfect to immerse myself further in these books.

Do you love this series like I do? How do you like these maps? If you like them, hop on over to KitKat’s blog for more such wonderful illustrations and some thoughts from the lady herself.

  • These are gorgeous! I’m here to troll your posts about GoT 😉

    These are really beautiful!

  • Wow! This is awesome! This now has a place in my pictures folder 😀 I’m referring to this later while I read, as so I won’t get lost at times

  • Pretty pretty maps! Helps make sense of it all in much more interesting way. I love the tv series too!

    • @Shweta: I so wish I could see the TV series. I don’t think it’s on here in India as yet. Or is it? I should check and see.

  • I am a sucker for illustrations with stories and this one is lovely! though I read George Martin’s ‘ a Dance with Dragons’… and didn’t like it. People have told me that the first one’s are good and I managed to pick up the one that wasn’t up to standards.. but I don’t know.

    • I think the books make sense only if read in a series. Sad to hear that the last book was a little slow. The first two books are totally gripping, and I’ve read very good things about A Storm of Swords as well, so I’m happy for now 🙂

  • Same here! Even I am hooked to this series now. These maps are really good 🙂

    • @Ava: Till which book have you read?

      • I am still in the first book 🙁 how about you?

        • Just finished the second book.
