“Fantasy is silver and scarlet, indigo and azure, obsidian veined with gold and lapis lazuli. Reality is plywood and plastic, done up in mud brown and olive drab. Fantasy tastes of habaneros and honey, cinnamon and cloves, rare red meat and wines as sweet as summer. Reality is beans and tofu, and ashes at the end.” -George R.R. Martin
But fantasy not only wakes us up to the lavish things in life, it also gives us a connection to our history, to the land and to the thousands of generations that have come before us. Have a listen to Tan Dun and Yo-Yo Ma’s legendary collaboration from Crouching Tiger, Hidden Dragon,
while you take a look at the incredible fantasy-style maps of modern cities by artist and professional geography professor Stentor Danielson!
