Details of the A Song of Ice and Fire 2025 Calendar have been released via Edelweiss and Amazon, and now we see that what seems to be one of the images—the cover image for the calendar—has also been released. Illustrated by concept artist and illustrator Eddie Mendoza, who first entered the Ice and Fire-art world with work he did on our own The Rise of the Dragon, next year’s edition of the calendar will focus on landscapes and castles from throughout the vast World of Ice and Fire, as described in the following text:
“Artist Eddie Mendoza brings us the landscapes and castles of Westeros as never seen before, with twelve stunning calendar illustrations, plus a thirteenth bonus fold-out poster.
“Journey across Westeros and Essos with artist Eddie Mendoza, as we see both new takes on some of the classic series locations, as well as never-before seen locales. From Skagos to Qarth, the Water Gardens to the Nightfort, here is the width and breadth of the Seven Kingdoms and Essos as you have never seen it before, full of majesty and sweeping vistas.”
And the cover appears to be one of these locations, one which has never really been depicted before in the “official” art (outside of a rendition or two in the Fantasy Flight Games Game of Thrones card game): Starfall, the ancient and storied seat of House Dayne. (Yes!)
We’ve had a little, little sneak peek regarding some of the other places fans will be seeing in the calendar, beyond what’s already been revealed above, and lets just say we’re excited to see what else Mendoza does with these thirteen images for the calendar.
The 2025 calendar will release on July 24th of next year, and will almost certainly be featured at the Random House booth at next year’s San Diego Comic-Con.
