Get a Sneak Peek at Exclusive New Maps from A Song of Ice and Fire!

Get a sneak peek at exclusive new Song of Ice and Fire maps from Bantam Books’ forthcoming The Lands of Ice and FireNew Song of Ice and Fire map book The Lands of Ice and Fire hits the shelves next Tuesday, October 30th, and Bantam Books has just sent over some exclusive sneak peeks of the new maps that will be featured!

All maps in The Lands of Ice and Fire are new works by illustrator and cartographer Jonathan Roberts, the centerpiece of which is a complete map of the known world, joining the lands of Westeros/the Seven Kingdoms and the lands across the Narrow Sea for the first time in series history.

Bantam wouldn't reveal that, naturally, but they did give us some intriguing close-ups of never-before-detailed areas to show you!

Click any image to enlarge.

These are just small portions of the many unique maps (all of which are 24“ by 36”) within The Lands of Ice and Fire. There's also an alternate version that tracks the movements of the series’ protagonists throughout their vast world, along with more detailed versions of the western, middle, and eastern thirds of the world; a full map of Westeros, combining North and South; one of the Dothraki Sea and the Red Wastes; and the Braavos city map.

And here, too, are fan favorites detailing everything from urban sprawl to untamed wilds: maps of King’s Landing; The Wall and Beyond the Wall; the Free Cities; and Slaver’s Bay, Valyria, and Sothyros.

The Lands of Ice and Fire is available from Bantam Books on October 30th. You can check out even more previews of the maps over on io9, including a first-ever peek at The Shadow Lands.

(And you can take a look at lots more fan-made and parody maps in the Related Articles below.)

We've had several previews as well over at Westeros, which can be found back through http://www.westeros.org/ASoWS/News/Entry/6692/ (our previous preview, of Braavos, also linked MTV Geek's several preview images).

There's also a great deal of discussion on the A Song of Ice and Fire forum at http://asoiaf.westeros.org/index.php/topic/63618-the-lands-of-ice-and-fire-a-new-map-book-out-in-oct-2012/ -- including a fairly reasonable construction of what the final world map will look like, thanks to a little teaser image RH posted on Facebook awhile back.

Thanks, Elio!

I love the pic of all the maps in the Random House conference room. I don't usually decorate with maps but I maaaay have to buy this book.
