[Video Link] Game of Thrones is not only one of best TV shows I've ever seen, it's also the most visually interesting (apart from the opening to Land of the Lost, of course). No wonder the show won six Creative Arts Emmy awards. Inside HBO's Game of Thrones is an excellent book that reveals the artistry and craftsmanship that goes into the making of the sets, costumes, and props of the TV series.
This official companion book gives fans new ways to enter this fictional world and discover more about the beloved (and reviled) characters and the electrifying plotlines. Hundreds of set photos, production and costume designs, storyboards, and insider stories reveal how the show's creators translated George R. R. Martin's best-selling fantasy series into the world of Westeros. Featuring interviews with key actors and crew members that capture the best scripted and unscripted moments from the first two seasons, as well as a preface by George R. R. Martin, this special volume, bound in a lavishly debossed padded cover, offers exclusive access to this unprecedented television series.
How can you go wrong with a lavishly debossed padded cover?
