What does a hand symbolize or a horn? There are meaningful towers and water gardens, stretching from the pyramids of Meereen to the infamous Iron Throne. Meanwhile, George R.R. Martin’s characters chomp on bloody beef, blood oranges, red wine, beets, and pomegranates between the inevitable bloodbaths. The intricately crafted world of books and show has endless depth, revealed in this companion for fans of every flavor.
