TV TIE IN FANTASY REVIEW: Game of Thrones: A Pop-Up Guide to Westeros - Matthew Reinhart

Release Date: 10/04/14
Publisher:  Bantam


Inspired by the Emmy Award-winning title sequence that opens each episode of the hit HBO series, Game of Thrones: A Pop-Up Guide to Westeros is guaranteed to thrill the show's legions of fans. Featuring stunning pop-up recreations of several key locations from the series, including the formidable castle of Winterfell, the lavish capital city King's Landing, and the Wall's stark majesty, this book takes readers into the world of the series like never before. Game of Thrones: A Pop-Up Guide to Westeros features five stunning spreads that fold out to create a remarkable pop-up map of Westeros, as well as numerous mini-pops that bring to life iconic elements of the show, such as direwolves, White Walkers, giants, and dragons. All the pops are accompanied by insightful text that relays the rich history of the Seven Kingdoms and beyond, forming a dynamic reference guide to the world of Game of Thrones. Visually spectacular and enthrallingly interactive, Game of Thrones: A Pop-Up Guide to Westeros sets a new standard for pop-up books and perfectly captures the epic scope and imagination of the series.


I’ve been a huge fan of the Song of Fire and Ice series for a number of years and with the tv series being such a big hit, its great fun to have a pop-up book that also pulls out as a map. Its quirky, it is wonderfully put together and as a huge fan its something I’m going to treasure and utilise quite a few times.

All round a great bit of fun and a wonderful addition to any GoT fan, definitely something unique and of course perhaps that different option for either a birthday or Christmas. Great stuff.
