Game of Thrones: George RR Martin shares STUNNING look at new ASOIAF artwork
Fans may still be waiting for The Winds of Winter, but a new edition of A Song of Ice and Fire’s A Clash of Kings has released with some stunning artwork. George RR Martin tweeted: “The collector’s editions of A Song of Ice and Fire from Folio Society are masterpieces of the bookmakers art. The second edition A Clash of Kings has just been released – here’s a look at one of the book’s beautiful works by Jonathan Burton.”
A couple of the gorgeous images were posted by Martin on his official blog.
The Folio Society edition of the second book in A Song of Ice and Fire is priced at £125.
A description reads on the website reads: “The fight for the Iron Throne heats up in A Clash of Kings.
“George R. R. Martin barely gives the reader time to recover from the shocks of the first book as four potential kings come into contention. Meanwhile, our favourite characters face extraordinary trials simply to survive.”

It continued: “Following on from The Folio Society’s wildly successful edition of A Game of Thrones, this unique two-volume set is packed with details that fans will love, including specially designed chapter headings and spectacular bindings.
“Jonathan Burton returns to capture all the grandeur, spectacle and emotion, with six colour illustrations and a double-page spread in each volume.
“Described by Martin as ‘masterpieces of the bookmaker’s art’, these are the finest editions of this generation’s most celebrated fantasy series, and if the first volume is anything to go by, A Clash of Kings will soon be as rare as dragon eggs.”
The main image in Martin’s tweet appears to be Sansa Stark looking at Dontos.
Back in March, Martin updated fans on his blog that he was self-isolating considering his age and condition.
He wrote: “I am off by myself in a remote isolated location, attended by one of my staff.
“And I’m not going into town or seeing anyone.”
The 71-year-old also revealed he had been writing The Winds of Winter every day and things were looking pretty grim in the land of Westeros.

Then in April, he wrote of his sadness that WorldCon New Zealand was being cancelled and replaced by a virtual experience.
Last year, the author had said how he intended on travelling to the sci-fi convention and made the July 29, 2020 start his personal deadline for having The Winds of Winter in his hands.
Martin wrote: “If there is a silver lining in these clouds, this will give me more time to finish WINDS OF WINTER.
“I continue to write every day, up here in my mountain fastness.”
By the sounds of it, Martin could well be almost done writing The Winds of Winter.
In fact, he may even just be polishing the long-awaited novel.
Even with a pandemic going on, fans shouldn’t rule out a late 2020 release.
The Winds of Winter is certainly a long time coming. After all, it’s been almost a decade since the last ASOIAF book was released.
