“[This book] contains the very best of the artwork done for Fantasy Flight’s board game and collectible card game. . . and a good deal more.” - George R.R. Martin, 2005
Featuring a foreword written by George R.R. Martin himself, this book is the cornerstone of any A Song of Ice & Fire collection. Relive some of the most memorable scenes of this fantastic book series, brought to life by colorful and imaginative illustrations. Taken from the Fantasy Flight Games titles set in George R.R. Martin’s beloved fantasy world, these pieces were handpicked to be included in this special collection of artwork.
“Here, indeed, is the world of Westeros as I imagined it: the chilly honor of the Starks and the cruel splendor of the Lannisters, the squalor and danger of King’s Landing, the sands of Dorne, the flowers of Highgarden, the snows of Winterfell, the icy immensity of the Wall and the fiery promise of Daenerys and her dragons . . . it’s all here, brought to vivid life with paint, pencil, or pixel by John Howe, John Schoenherr, Michael Komarck, Jim Burns, Stephen Youll, Don Maitz, Donato Giancola, John Matson, Thomas Denmark, Martina Pilcerova, Roman Papusev, Franz Miklis, Steve Stone, Mike S. Miller, and a host of other gifted artists too numerous to mention.” - George R.R. Martin, 2005
After selling out in its original print run, this collection of art has been revised and edited, creating an exciting new edition that paves the way for future volumes.
“My only complaint about [the book] is that it is way too short. I would have liked another hundred pages...The card game and the board game both continue, so in a few more years we may well have enough work for A Song of Ice & Fire, Volume Two. Westeros is very large, after all, and there are many places to visit, and people yet to meet...” - George R.R. Martin, 2005
The wonderful images found within these pages are taken from the growing collection of A Song of Ice & Fire inspired games in the Fantasy Flight Games catalog. The expanding line of cards in A Game of Thrones: The Card Game feature many of these images, as well as hundreds more. A Game of Thrones: The Board Game and its expansions all use such artwork to immerse players into a world of intrigue and war.
And the visions don’t end when you turn the last page of The Art of George R.R. Martin’s A Song of Ice & Fire, as future expansions and new games like Battles of Westeros continue to produce more and more artwork from the fields of the Seven Kingdoms.
