In the 2014 edition of the calendar that has become an annual tradition for Game of Thrones fans, celebrated illustrator Gary Gianni delivers twelve stunning, hand-painted interpretations of scenes from A Song of Ice and Fire, capturing both its epic scope and most intimate moments. Revered by many for his work on Prince Valiant, Gianni’s classically composed, richly detailed art harkens back to the golden age of illustration—a fascinating new vision of the dark, complex world of George R. R. Martin’s magnum opus.
George R.R. Martin sold his first story in 1971 and has been writing professionally since then. He spent ten years in Hollywood as a writer-producer, working on The Twilight Zone, Beauty and the Beast, and various feature films and television pilots that were never made. In the mid ‘90s he returned to prose, his first love, and began work on his epic fantasy series, A Song of Ice and Fire. He has been in the Seven Kingdoms ever since. Whenever he’s allowed to leave, he returns to Santa Fe, New Mexico, where he lives with the lovely Parris, and four cats, who think they run the place.
