3.0 out of 5 stars Awesome maps, not-so-awesome format, November 4, 2012
By 
This review is from: The Lands of Ice and Fire (A Game of Thrones): Maps from King's Landing to Across the Narrow Sea (Poster)
Like many other reviewers, I was hoping for these maps in an atlas-type format to reference while reading. Knowing that they were poster-sized maps, I decided to order them anyway. As mentioned by other reviewers, the posters are creased to fit in the containing "book", and have minor tears along the creases due to the mediocre quality of the paper. I do not think they would be suitable for framing. I get the feeling that if they were heavily handled (i.e., unfolded and refolded), they would fall apart.

That said, the maps are very detailed and fun to look through. I did not have issues with putting the maps back into the book as another reviewer mentioned. My only other concern is with one of the maps labeled "Journeys". The map essentially plots the paths of all POV characters from the beginning of the series until the end of A Dance With Dragons. It just seems strange to me to include a map that will be out-of-date once the remaining books are published. Aside from that, the Journeys map is rather hard to follow given the large number of POV characters.
