I have had this book for a while I've often flipped through it but today I sat down and read itlooked at it page by page In the forward Martin mentions being nervous about Fantasy Flight giving a face to all of his characters This book was published before the TV show of course and while that is true I now have so many of these characters firmly in my head that some of the art was unsatisfactory for that reason Unfair perhaps but that is how it goesThe thing I liked least about this book was that in some ways it felt like a great big ad for the Fantasy Flight game On the other it included art from all over yay John Howe and Charles Vess With all that art it is nice to have it collected togetherSome characterizations were better than other I liked Littlefinger the Hound Walder Frey and Chris Dien's Brienne I didn't like Salvador Saan or Tyrion Jaime was hit and miss Of course Drogo can only and forever be Jason MamoaIt was fun to see Lannisport and Winterfell it always seems to feel small in the TV show Excellent art work throughout this book My favourite part is that this was published before Game of Thrones came out on TV Some of the artist’s portrayals were spot on with how I see the characters Others were uite different All in all this is uite the book of art Overall another great book depicting the art of A Song of Ice and Fire I didn’t find some of the organization to be laid out the best But still some fantastic pieces I think that the work done by Michael Komarck were my favourite from this volume Nice artworks I like that each of the artists imagine the same characters or scenes sometimes very differently It's valuable to see this diversity Adeuate Beautiful art and I love it but I read it like a coffee table book skims and delight so many characters so little time Nice book There's not much I can say about this book and it's second volume other than the art work is amazing George RR Martin has woven an incredible tapestry of storytelling with his fully realized secondary world in the A Song of Ice and Fire series The World of Ice and Fire Planetos? comes alive with colored artwork from all around his world of the people and places and castles and beyond in an astounding way that matches the gargantuan size of his world A variety of artists give it a sense of realism even when we are looking at giants white walkers and dragons I hope to see compilation books of artwork in the future from his series So I am a fan of the book series And I am a fan of art In conseuence I've been wanting this book for ages When there was a sale at one of my favourite online book stores I decided just to go for it and order the book I am ever so happy I didThe book has a foreword by George R R Martin that is full of heart and funny He talks about what a weird experience it is to have other people turn your world into art I thought it was a lovely read and laughed heartily as I read itThe art is divided into sections of land which means all Winterfell art is one chapter all Highgarden art is one chapter etc The art was accompanied by uotes from the first three books and occasionally from the fourth book as well Basically this is a very uick overview of all the characters in George R R Martin's epic tale and sometimes you'll see a relevant scene from the books But only sometimes because this art was not so much meant as an illustration as that it was meant for a card gameAnd at the end of the book there is information on all the artists which is just lovelyThe only thing that disappointed me a little was that the book is well rather thin There were many paintings and pictures in the book but just not enough Most characters even huge characters like Arya and Sansa Stark only got 1 or 2 pictures tops And I would like to see But I guess that just means I will have to buy volume 2 doesn't it?
