ART | A New Look to GRRM's A Song of Ice & Fire

I'm always surprised at the level of fan art out there for Fantasy works, but rarely am I disappointed with the outcome. That is the case with Matt Roeser's fabulous take on A Song of Ice and Fire by George R.R. Martin. Most of these books have already had half a dozen covers in English already let alone the further dozens for the translated editions. But what is new that can be done? Well feast your eyes below.

A Game of Thrones
Roeser on his blog mentioned his inspiration for the look on the series:
For my covers, I wanted to showcase the idea of these feuding medieval families that are constantly vying for power, but didn’t want to have knights on horses, epic battle scenes and the other visuals that are usually on these types of fantasy novels. So instead, I depicted the idea of house crests and the importance the author puts in each of the families and gave each of the 5 books a distinct color.
A Clash of Kings
A Storm of Swords
A Feast for Crows

A Dance With Dragons


Roeser certainly brought his "A" game and I hope his work on reimagining other master works leads to more professional cover design work. I'd certainly welcome editions with his versions of A Song of Ice and Fire on my permanent shelf.

Whoa! Now those are cool. Even better than the recent US covers using the old UK art, which I thought were the best so far.

These are the first decent covers for ASoiaF that I've ever seen, and these are far beyond decent. They perfectly capture the feel of the series. I would gladly buy the set in a heartbeat in physical form if they had these covers. Until then, I am content with my Nookbooks.

Cool covers aside, that newcover site is pretty awesome. Great way to get your work out there and show off what you could do give the opportunity.

I don't like the tv tie-in editions. It's too cheesy. Those look great though.

Wow!

Cela ressemble au-delà étonnant.

Non, attendez .... il va au-delà étonnant.

Un travail bien fait (comme toujours).

Cheers!
