Realms of the Imagination

 

 Many fiction readers have explored imaginary realms in their minds. The more literal-minded among us, however, sometimes need a bit more guidance, which explains the large collection of real maps for not-so-real places in the new exhibit Literary Landscapes: Maps from Fiction at the Boston Public Library. Dating from the 16th century on, the maps on display depict not only iconic lands from children’s stories, like Neverland, Middle Earth and Oz (pictured), but also worlds from more recent works like George R.R. Martin’s Westeros from his Game of Thrones saga and Suzanne Collins’ Panem from The Hunger Games trilogy.
