From start to finish, this book is simply an essential part of any Martin fan's collection.
The quality of the pictures, Winterfell eg, are amazing and help bring the events on page to life. Showing the lineage of the Targaeryn line also helped put a lot of events in order.
I was initially sceptical about this book, thinking it was just an easy way for someone to get some money out of the series but I heartily recommend it to all fans.

If you are a fan of the Song of Ice and Fire series then you must buy this. A really high quality collection of fantasy art inspired by the imagination of George RR Martin. I was lucky enough to get a copy signed by Martin and I will treasure it. A book to keep and refer back to as you enjoy the ongoing saga. If you are looking for a superb present for a fan of Martin's books then look no further...

Just so there are no more misunderstandings, this is the 2010 reprinted edition, not the original copy pictured. It doesn't contain the portraits of all the targareyan kings as stated in other reviews. Amazon need to sort out their advertising. Book is still good, but would have been better if these portraits hadn't been removed for the new edition. By the way, they aren't in the new second volume either. Could have been better, four stars instead of five.

I kept this book and the follow-up book 2 close at hand whilst reading the first four books of the Song of Ice and Fire series. I found myself referring to them many times. Having a few different artists depict a specific character helps you put together a good image of the character yourself. With the Game of Thrones book already released as a TV series and the next one soon to be released at the time of me writing this, I suppose that one can quickly fall into the trap of relying on the TV characters for character reference when reading the book. Although they did a great job selecting characters, it is nice to see other interpretations.

Would have really liked the Stark siblings together, and a few main characters were missed completely. Otherwise? Brilliant. Cover to cover. Even if I did have to look up the titles on occasion to work out who was being depicted.

This is a very good representation of the story characters, though I feel a couple of the artists have not read what they are trying to put down in art.
