From the Publisher
This is a collection of art based on George R. R. Martin''s bestselling fantasy series A Song of Ice and Fire. "No, I just want to stand on top of the Wall and piss off the edge of the world." - Tyrion Lannister. George R. R. Martin''s A Song of Ice and Fire has thrilled and inspired millions of readers since its debut in 1996. Its lush and cinematic style paints images in the mind, and more than a few artists have put those images to canvas (digital or otherwise). Now, for the first time, art inspired by this best-selling series is collected in The Art of George R. R. Martin''s A Song of Ice and Fire. From the North, with its epic Wall of socery and ice, through the war-torn Riverlands and down to the hot sands and hot tempers of Dorne; from the salt-sprayed Iron Islands in the west, across the grand city of King''s Landing and across the sea to the strange and exotic locales of the East; from maester to knight to Dothraki horselord, the splendor and panoply of the Seven Kingdoms and beyond comes to life. Drawing from diverse sources, including Fantasy Flight Games'' award-winning A Game of Thrones CCG and board game, The Art of George R. R. Martin''s A Song of Ice and Fire will feature the popular locations and characters that have made the story great in gorgeous full-color. Including all-new artwork and a forward by George R. R. Martin himself, this book is sure to be a hit with fans of the series and will introduce countless others to the breath-taking scope of A Song of Ice and Fire.
