If you want to go real mainstream, check out the Game of Thrones 2013 Wall Calendar by HBO, which has pictures from the show. Thankfully, however, you have the choice of just getting book art, which I'm a huge fan of. Marc Simonetti is a great artist and I am really in love with these beautiful, subtle paintings. Each month is titled and it also says what book it is from. Here is a breakdown of months:

SPOILERS

January - "Among the Crows" (AGOT): Bran Stark is jumping from building to building
February - "The Kingsmoot" (AFFC): Asha Greyjoy doing her Queensmoot thing
March - "In the House of Dust" (ACOK): Daenerys Targaryen in the House of the Undying
April - "The Three-Eyed Crow" (ADWD): Bran Stark and the Three-Eyed Crow
May - "In the Sorrows" (ADWD)
June - "Atonement" (ADWD): Cersei Lannister's "Walk of Shame." Yikes.
July - "The Bear Pit" (ASOS): My favorite! Jaime Lannister and Brienne Tarth in the bear pit.
August - "Mother and Son" (ADWD): Daenerys Targaryen with Drogon in Daznak's Pit.
September - "Lady Stoneheart" (AFFC): A quite ominous one of "Lady Stoneheart."
October - "A New Face" (ADWD): Arya Stark checking out the different faces in the House of Black and White
November - "The Ghost of Harrenhal" (ACOK): Just a picture of the creepy Harrenhal
December - "Broken Vows" (ASOS)

This is just a simply beautiful calendar and I can't wait for 2013 to hang it up!

I per-ordered this based on the cover image alone (gorgeous!) but I sort of regret buying it...the art work is all top notch, but I think they picked some strange scenes. Do I really want Cersei's "walk of shame" on my wall for an entire month? Probably not. The "Lady Stoneheart" scene is beautiful and ominous, but also features a lot of hanging corpses...again, not sure I'd want this on my wall where other people - especially those not familiar with the series - might see it. Similar feelings about Daenerys in the house of the Undying, and the "Broken Vows" lovers (gorgeous, but provocative).
All and all a really beautiful calendar, but I feel like I need to hide it in a back corner of my house where children and the in-laws won't see it.

The illustrations are beautiful. The calender combines images from the fifth book, Dance with Dragons, with images from the previous four books. Captions are included with each picture to help identify the scene the image was constructed from.

I expected this calendar to be good, but it turned out to be fantastic! I was blown away by the beauty and detail of the drawings. I highly recommend this for anyone who's read the ASOIAF series. For fans of the TV series who haven't read the books, warning: spoilers! :)

I am hooked on the Game of Trones. I have watched all the TV programs and listened on disk to all the five books. I could not resist buying the calander. I am not sorry!

As some of the other reviewers commented, some of it is pretty morbid, like Cersei's walk of shame, but I totally signed up for that when I bought this gorgeous thing, so. Fantastic art. A little caption at the bottom of each calendar month over what the subject is and it's book. When open, top half is the month's picture and bottom is the calendar; gorgeous centerfold (basically of the scene on the cover) that takes up both halves right in the middle.

Illustrated by the awesome Marc Simonetti, this calendar features artwork from ALL of the novels that are currently in print. That is how it should be presented and it works well. The imagery is sharp and focused and thrilling at the same time as he gives us his interpretations of George R R Martin's wonderful world of Westeros and the Seven Kingdoms. A fantastic purchase for all fans of 'A Song of Ice and Fire'!

For fans of George R.R. Martin, this calendar is far superior to the poorly conceived 2013 calendar for HBO's "Game of Thrones." The artwork is above average for one thing and covers wider aspects of the Ice and Fire saga. Skip the HBO version which features close ups of the show's stars from the first season. Since season #3 will be shown this spring their calendar is way out of date for the new year.

More About the Author

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 two cats named Augustus and Caligula, who think they run the place.
