A year has passed since the Folio Society released their fourth entry in their illustrated editions of A Song of Ice and Fire, and like clockwork they have now released the fifth volume, A Dance with Dragons! Like the previous volumes, it comes in a beautiful, slipcased two-volume edition with beautiful artwork by Jonathan Burton. Below, you’ll find the Folio Society’s video for the launch, as well as a few images they’ve sent to us share!
From the Folio Society:
New alliances and fresh conspiracies spawn as the fight for the Iron Throne continues… The fifth book in the most celebrated fantasy series of the 21st century arrives in a resplendent two-volume set. This special collector’s edition of A Dance with Dragons features 16 full-colour illustrations by series artist Jonathan Burton, as well as unique illustrated chapter headings, endpapers printed with emblems of the warring Houses, and a slipcase decorated with a golden monogram on the exterior and a secret image on the interior. Two binding designs, also provided by Burton, capture the drama that runs through the heart of ‘A Song of Ice and Fire’ like the blood red sap of the Weirwood tree. To help keep track of the intricate plotlines, this edition comes complete with updated and expanded genealogies.
