The Lands of Ice and Fire: A Peek at Braavos

Following up from last week’s first preview of The Lands of Ice and Fire, the collection of a dozen poster maps featuring all-new maps of Westeros and Essos (Pre-order: Amazon US, Amazon UK), here is our second preview: a key slice of the Free City of Braavos!

I call this a “key” section because, if you look at it, it features a number of locations mentioned in the course of A Feast for Crows and A Dance with Dragons, all of them based both on Martin’s own map of Braavos checked against the published texts for any changes or inconsistencies that Bantam, the artist Jonathan Roberts (FantasticMaps on Twitter, and yours truly could find. Looks nice, right?

 

 

We’ve placed it as the new cover for our Facebook fan page, which you’re welcome to visit and Like if you haven’t yet done so—it gets a lot of ASoIaF and GoT related tidbits that never make it to official posts.

Visit again next Tuesday for the third and final sneak peek we have on hand, featuring a never-before-seen section of Essos that I picked myself because… well, it hints at interesting things. And in the meantime, you can also drop by MTV Geek, where they’ve revealed four exclusive slices of the maps of their own, including an overlapping part of the Braavos map that adds a bit more detail from what we have, and their own unique and mysterious piece of the great continent of Essos.
