5.0 out of 5 stars superb art! 21 July 2010
Format:Calendar
The art of Ted Nasmith, better known for his Tolkien calendars over the last 25 years, now branches out into these wonderful depictions of George RR Martin's castles. The original pieces are quite stunning, but as they are rarely seen this is probably the only chance most people will get to see them - and in this larger format it is worth having. For those who love GRRM, for those who love fantasy art, and for those who just love gorgeous landscapes and wonderful structures of the imagination, get this calendar - you will not be disappointed.

5.0 out of 5 stars Great Looking 1 Nov 2010
Format:Calendar
The pictures are really great. Some are particluarly stunning such as Casterly Rock, Castle Black (and The Wall!) and the Red Keep to name a few of my personal favourites but none are a let down. If you are a fan of the Ice and Fire series in need of a 2011 calendar then this is the one for you.

5.0 out of 5 stars Beautiful Artwork - Even when it's not quite right 24 July 2010
By Jeremy - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Calendar|Verified Purchase
I have to admit that I love Ted Nasmith's work, so was predisposed to like this calendar. For the most part, he rendered the castles wonderfully. Even when I disagree with his take on them, they are still wonderful pieces. Of the 13 castles, 10 are perfect. The renderings of Winterfell, Highgarden, The Red Keep, Riverun, The Eyrie, and Sunspear are particularly fine. One, Casterly Rock, is a very imaginative rendering that, while not being what I had pictured, was so well done that it convinced me. Only 2, Harrenhal and Storms End, were "wrong," and even then, they were beautifully done. In Short, for G. R. R. Martin and fantasy artwork fans, this calendar is well worth it!

5.0 out of 5 stars Wonderful artwork for a great series of books! 19 Aug 2010
By DrStephK - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Calendar|Verified Purchase
I don't normally buy calendars for a new year 5 months ahead of time, but didn't want to wait to get this one since I missed out on the 2009 George R.R. Martin "Song of Ice and Fire" calendar. I am a fan of Ted Nasmith's work, particularly his illustrations for Tolkien's "Silmarillion," and the artwork in this calendar is equally stunning. The detail in the paintings is exquisite. There is one castle for each month plus a large gatefold. If you are a fan of Nasmith's, Martin's, or both, I highly recommend this calendar.

5.0 out of 5 stars Stunning 23 Aug 2010
By Marc C. Harpster - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Calendar|Verified Purchase
This calendar contains a beautiful rendering of just about every major castle in the ASOAF series, and each and every one of the castles does two things: 1) it meets my expectations in terms of the particular detail built by GRRM. 2) They exceed my expectations with regard to the overall beauty of each castle. The artist is amazing. While every one is incredible, I think Castle Black is my personal favorite. I'm excited to actually use the calendar once 2011 rolls around.

5.0 out of 5 stars Ice and Fire fans, rejoice! 17 Sep 2010
By L. J. Goldstein - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Calendar|Verified Purchase
If you're a fan of A Song of Ice and Fire and want to know what the castles of Westeron look like before the HBO series, here's your chance. And, the artwork is by the BEST and brilliant Ted Nasmith who has done a lot for Lord of the Rings. Now was his chance at something new and different. He worked closely with Martin on this project and it doesn't disappoint. Order it today!
5.0 out of 5 stars A+!!!! 26 Dec 2010
By veritatis - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Calendar
I was in a local bookstore today- looking at all the great books I did not get for Christmas gifts- and I inadvertently walked into the calendar section. I saw a couple that looked mildly interesting (one called "wonders of the world" for example) and then I saw this calendar. I am a fan GRRM's books so I was immediately picked it up and flipped through it. The illustrations are wonderful (I especially liked the one of the Hightower of Oldtown) and are mostly accurate. They even matched up the castles to months that represent them well. For example, Winterfell is the picture in January and Sunspear is the picture for August. The wonderful illustrations, and the fact that most bookstores have calendars 50% off right now, make this calendar worthy of a 5-star rating.
