Insight Collectibles presents a stunning collector’s edition composed of the best-selling book Game of Thrones: A Pop-Up Guide to Westeros and an exclusive astrolabe sculpture inspired by the iconic opening sequence of the hit HBO original series. The astrolabe stands over 13 inches high and is fully articulated, with moving rings that dynamically replicate the oscillating movement of the astrolabe seen in the Game of Thrones opening sequence. Each ring is ornamented with fine details, such as the sigils of the Great Houses of Westeros, and the center ring is engraved with intricate symbology, revealing the history of both Westeros and Essos, that is glimpsed at the start of each show. The astrolabe itself is supported by a stand adorned with the animals that represent the sigils associated with the four Great Houses of Westeros: a direwolf for House Stark, a lion for House Lannister, a stag for House Baratheon, and a dragon for House Targaryen. Each is finely crafted and highly detailed, from the direwolf’s coat to the dragon’s talons. The astrolabe’s weathered finish makes it look and feel like an object from the world of Game of Thrones. Accompanying the astrolabe is a special limited edition of Game of Thrones: A Pop-Up Guide to Westeros featuring an exclusive slipcase and signed by renowned pop-up engineer Matthew Reinhart. This amazing pop-up book includes five stunning spreads that fold out to create a remarkable pop-up map of Westeros that is perfect for displaying. The book also contains numerous mini-pops that bring to life iconic elements of the show, such as direwolves, White Walkers, giants, and dragons. All the pops are accompanied by insightful text that relays the rich history of the Seven Kingdoms and more, forming a dynamic reference guide to the world of Game of Thrones. Visually spectacular and enthrallingly interactive, Game of Thrones: A Pop-Up Guide to Westeros sets a new standard for pop-up books and perfectly captures the epic scope and imagination of the series.
