Why we love it
We love the watercolour effect that the mapmaker has used to really bring to life the style of this map. The bold blue makes this map particularly eye-catching and allows the detail of the land and the filming locations to distinctively stand out. We love that this map shows the wide range of filming locations that the programme has used.
Why it works
This map works so well as it embodies the Game of Thrones style, making it instantly clear from looking at it what the map represents. It demonstrates that a map can be artistic and applied to many different subject areas.
