DABEL BROTHERS LAUNCH NEW ONLINE STORE WITH TWO EXCLUSIVE ‘A SONG OF ICE AND FIRE’ ART PRINTS & A ‘DRESDEN FILES’ POSTER
Dabel Brothers Publishing’s online storefront offers fans of George R. R. Martin and Jim Butcher the chance to order three never-before-seen, stunning pieces of artwork… just in time for the holidays!
Fans of George R. R. Martin’s A Song of Ice and Fire and Jim Butcher’s The Dresden Files have something special to look forward to this holiday season.
That’s because the Dabel Brothers announced that with the re-opening of their official online storefront, they’re offering an exclusive poster and two limited edition art prints featuring beautiful, never-before-seen artwork… just in time for the holiday season!
The two art prints feature characters from George R. R. Martin’s A Song of Ice and Fire novels. One print shows Ned Stark, leaning against a tree in the quiet of the godswood and cleaning his sword as the autumn leaves fall around him. The other shows Sansa Stark, sitting in the softly falling snow and building an icy miniature castle for herself. Each print features a lovely black border and a brief quote from the text that evokes the scene from which each illustration is inspired.
The poster features Harry Dresden from Jim Butcher’s The Dresden Files, in a scene fans of the novels will likely remember, as Harry Dresden is attacked by a toad demon named Kalshazzak and is left out on the street, in the nude, with his date. (After all, a date with Harry Dresden is an invitation to expect the unexpected!) The poster depicts the exciting climax of the battle, as Harry channels the power of a storm and blasts the demon with a bolt of lightning.
Each poster and art print measures 18x24 inches. The Dresden Files poster will be printed on heavy, glossy paper that is suitable for framing or simply for decorating a wall, for the nice price of $14.99, plus shipping. The A Song of Ice and Fire art prints are printed on high quality stock with a clear varnish to protect the print over time. Each is suitable for framing and limited to only 500 pieces, for a cost of $24.99, plus shipping. In order to keep the art prints and posters from being torn or bent, the Dabel Brothers are shipping each order flat, between two thick pieces of cardboard. Posters will be carefully rolled and shipped in packing tubes. And the Dabel Brothers are guaranteeing all orders placed by December 15th for delivery in time for Christmas, which means these prints can make great holiday gifts for the George R. R. Martin and Jim Butcher fans alike!
“We’ve had great success with these posters and art prints before, and the fans have been begging us to do another one,” explained Les Dabel, Vice President of Dabel Brothers Publishing. “We’re thrilled to be offering these, especially since they have turned out to be such top quality illustrations!”
