Game of Thrones: A Pop-Up Guide to Westeros


Ever since it was announced on Matthew Reinhart’s Facebook page, “Game of Thrones: A Pop-Up Guide to Westeros” has been an exercise in EQ (of the “Shut up and take my money!” sort), so when I finally saw it today at the bookstore, I was powerless to resist.

Paper engineered by Matthew Reinhart, with illustrations by Michael Komark, this deluxe pop-up book is an incredible volume that  takes the reader through Westeros and beyond, featuring five spreads of key locations in the series and over thirty smaller pop-ups, folding out into a 46″x30″ map of the kingdom.

Allow me to let the photos do the talking (cue Game of Thrones theme):

Not only are the pop-ups amazing; the book also showcases a wealth of information on the locations, major Houses, creatures, important artifacts and key events in the series.

But wait, there’s more — the book’s back cover isn’t attached to the spine; it’s held fast by a magnetic strip:

And here comes the best part:



The book will set you back a pretty penny, but for the amazing detail, and the sheer artistry, I say it’s well worth it. It comes just in time for the new season, and would definitely recommend it to both fans of the series and pop-up enthusiasts.
