I haven’t actually read that many books that have maps in – one of the perils of only just starting to explore the fantasy genre! It took me a very long time looking through all of my books to find five, but I do like the maps that I’ve found.
5) ‘Hollow Earth’ by John and Carole Barrowman
Sadly I’ve had to pick a photo off of Google to show my favourite bookish map of all time – that from ‘The Winner’s Curse’ by Marie Rutkoski. I own the novel on my Kindle, so I’ve only seen the map in small, disjointed images before, but it looks so beautiful as a full image. I love the creatures around the outside displaying Bite and Sting cards, and I love the Kestrel sat on the compass – the main character’s namesake. It’s just so well thought out and beautiful, even if the best details aren’t really focused on the map itself.
I hope you enjoyed my Top Five Wednesday! Feel free to leave your links down below, or let me know if I’ve missed any really beautiful maps.
