Did you know that there were no maps created for Suzanne Collins’ Hunger Games trilogy until after the books were published? No official map had been created for the books until Lionsgate Films created a promotional map for Hunger Games: The Exhibition. Prior to that, fans had started to create their own maps to envision the layout of the different districts in the book. I’m including just one example of a fan-created map here (and you may find more online).
Visit our Fantasy Maps exhibit at Central Library! Part of our celebration of Worlds of Wonder, the exhibit runs from June 11 – October 15th. Our Great Hall has a fantastical map of St. Louis, as well as stands which have illustrations of beautiful maps from fiction books. In addition, up in the Carnegie Room on the third floor, we have cases filled with a number of beautiful maps from all kinds of books. Whether it’s the Land of Oz or the lands of Westeros and Essos, you’ll discover just how diverse maps can be! This exhibit also features a variety of different maps of St. Louis itself, letting you see the city in new ways.
