The U.S. tie-in cover for Game of Thrones now revealed and is now available for pre-order at Amazon.com and other retailers. Again, featuring the official poster art with Ned on the Iron Throne, it’s a strong image, although purists may take issue with the title losing the the article to match the TV series.
Taking a look at the entry also reminded us of the fact that the 2012 A Song of Ice and Fire Calendar is up for pre-order, featuring the stunning art of award-winning artist John Picacio. We’re hoping that the next couple of months will provide us some more previews, but that image of Ned Stark with Ice in front of the heart tree of Winterfell is pretty amazing in and of itself…
And, via Olaf, it’s been noted to us that there’s a four book set now available, featuring the four new covers with some HBO trade dress on them. Rather handsome. You can see a mock-up of the box with the books in it here, from Random House’s catalog.
The Westeros network consists of several different sites, including a forum and a wiki, for all your A Song of Ice and Fire needs.
