Michael Tyznik is a graphic designer who, like many other people out there, is a big fan of HBO's "Game of Thrones." Inspired by the works of Cameron Booth, who creates stylish transit maps of locations across the United States, Tyznik created awesome transit maps of Westeros and the rest of the Known World from the series.
The maps themselves are incredibly detailed, with multiple rail lines sprouting out of King's Landing heading to The Eyrie, Winterfell, Casterly Rock, and many other locations complete with multiple stops along the way. The larger map includes both rail and ferry lines that take patrons on beyond Westeros.
When creating the maps, Tyznik carefully considered events that have occurred in the series thus far. Some stations along the rail lines are no longer in service, with X's on the map indicating that trains will no longer stop there. Though if previous seasons of "Game of Thrones" are any indication, the map will almost certainly be out-of-date by the end of next season, as one or more towns are inevitably going to get destroyed.
While these aren't the first fantasy-based transit maps we've seen -- "Doctor Who," "Lord of the Rings" and Nintendo's "Mario Kart" have all been given the transit treatment -- Tyznik's work is arguably one of the best in both design and detail. If you'd like to get a copy of his work to proudly display at your home or office, Tyznik sells prints of his maps of Westeros and The Known World through InPrnt for prices ranging from $30 to $80, depending on size.
