High Quality Book,
Verified Purchase(What's this?)
This review is from: Inside HBO's Game of Thrones: Seasons 1 & 2 (Hardcover)
This book is gorgeous and is an excellent companion to the TV series. It's full of beautiful full and double page pictures from the show. There are interesting tidbits about set design, filming locations, concept art for locations and costumes and it features interviews with the cast, the costume designers, the directors, all sorts of folks involved in bringing the world of Westeros to life.
I was surprised by the quality - this is a nice book. It has a sturdy, embellished cover and the pages are thick. This isn't a flimsy, over-sized paperback, it's a real quality book. Honestly, it's much higher quality than I expected it to be. I was quite pleasantly surprised. I think I'm going to order a second copy as a Christmas gift for a friend.
Hardcore fans may want to wait for the collector's edition box set (pre-order for $150 through the HBO store) which contains this book, two maps, an artist's portfolio(book) of additional storyboard art (including deleted and alternate scenes), and a signed book plate (by this book's author, Bryan Cogman, not Martin). Does it sound awesome? Yes. But, if you don't have $150 to spare picking up this book for $26 is great deal here on Amazon.

Does this book have good maps, along with the family trees, for reference and figuring out what's going on and who's who?
