Rather than discuss how this is like or different from the books and/or TV series, I will discuss only how I feel about it as an adult coloring book.
First of all, the illustrations are beautiful. I say illustrations rather than designs because a number of them appear to be finished ink and pen studies rather than designs that a colorist can finish and interpret in their own unique way. For those designs, I can't envision how I would color them (possibly with watercolors) but I certainly will try as I'm up for a challenge. Because of this, I detracted a star from my rating.
There are still many designs which I feel that I can, as a moderately experienced colorist and artist, be able to color and enjoy. For those, there are intricate details and I may need to use my magnifying lamp to work on those areas.
Physically, the book is very well made. The designs are printed on one side with excerpts from the books written on the back of the page. The pages are thick and white; however, they are not perforated. The binding is glued rather than sewn, so removing pages from the book will be a little more difficult. Most of the designs merge into the binding, but the portions that might be lost if I cut the pages out are not the central theme of the design.
None of my gel pens bled through to the back of the page. My colored pencils all worked well on the surface of the paper. My water-based markers did not leak through; however, my ultra-fine Sharpies and Copics did. In any case, I would recommend putting a waste sheet of some sort (chipboard, freezer paper, cardstock, etc.) under the page you are working on to keep ink from possibly getting on the following pages.
In summary, an interesting coloring book with some very colorist unfriendly but beautiful illustrations. The book is very well made but could be improved upon if the pages were perforated for easy removal.
So I finished a piece in this book and the paper wound up being easy to work with. I did wind up taking the page out of the book though because the spine isn't as pliable as I would like. I think that this publisher could have done a better job with the book though because the glued binding was really a let down after seeing some other well made coloring books out there. Hopefully there will be another GoT coloring book that is made better but until then this one is not a bad choice for fans of the book series. Fans of the show will probably be off put by the fact that the images weren't drawn with the tv show in mind.

This is a very nice book style coloring book. I say book as the pages are not meant to be removed. On one side there is a quote from the book and on the other side is the beautiful illustrations to color. The pages are thick and the book is blinded well and made well. As it does have quotes on one side of the page I did not try markers as I did not want to take the chance of them fading through. Instead I got him gel pens and colored pencils to use for the coloring in the book.
This is a great gift for a lover of these books and also a great keepsake to put up once you have finished coloring it. I was pleasantly surprised with the quality of this coloring book.
