Each episode of HBO’s Game of Thrones draws millions of obsessed viewers who revel in the shocking plot twists, award-winning performances, and gorgeously rendered fantasy world.
This official companion book reveals what it takes to translate George R. R. Martin’s bestselling series into a wildly popular television series. With unprecedented scope and depth, it showcases hundreds of unpublished set photos, visual effects art, and production and costume designs, plus insights from key actors and crew members that capture the best scripted and unscripted moments from Seasons 3 and 4.
Required reading for the die-hard fan, and the perfect way to catch up on the series before the much-anticipated Season 5 debuts, this special volume offers an exclusive window into cable’s highest-rated show.
I’ve never reviewed Non Fiction before so this one was a totally new experience for me. I really love ‘behind the scenes’ books and have spent many many hours reading through my Harry Potter one, so thought I couldn’t go wrong with a Game of Thrones one as I love the TV series so much!
Firstly, this book is gorgeous. When I signed up for a review copy of this book no way did I know I was going to be getting something so beautiful. A stunning hardback with padded and embossed covers this is one book you will be proud to have on your bookshelf! Each page features at least one glossy photo, drawing or diagram that you will gaze at for hours!
