The Lands of Ice and Fire is a boxed collection of twelve A Song of Ice and Fire map posters, stretching from Westeros to Asshai. It is illustrated by cartographer Jonathan Roberts of the Fantastic Maps blog. The collection came out in the US from Bantam Books on 30 October 2012[1] and in the UK from HarperCollins Voyager on 8 November 2012. Six of the maps were included in the A World of Ice and Fire app's update on 20 September 2013.


The twelve included maps are:[1]

Some of the places the maps depict were previously not mentioned in canon, including:[2]

Three routes penetrate the Bone Mountains. They connect the Dothraki Sea and Qarth with the unknown and exotic lands to the East:


You will find a map of the "known world" in THE LANDS OF ICE AND FIRE... one that includes lands and seas you have never seen on any of my maps before. [...] Even so, it's not a COMPLETE world map, no. The idea was to do something representing the lands and seas of which, say, a maester of the Citadel might be aware... and while the maesters know more about Asshai and the lands beyond than a medieval monk knew about Cathay, distance remains a factor, and past a certain point legends and myths will creep here. Here there be winged men, and such. [...] These are very nice maps, I hope you will agree. Huge and beautiful, and while they DON'T show the whole world (sorry, no, you're not going to get the Westerosi equivalent of the Americas or Antarctica or Australia, assuming such places exist), you will get a glimpse of distant lands where my characters (and thus the novels) will likely never go.[3]
