Inside HBO's Game of Thrones

If you're missing Westeros as much as we are, then you'll be pleased to hear about the forthcoming release from Chronicle Books, 'Inside HBO's Game of Thrones'.

"HBO's Game of Thrones draws millions of obsessed viewers each episode. This official companion book offers an exclusive look at how the show's creators translated George R.R. Martin's best-selling fantasy series into a fantastic yet plausible world that has captivated views worldwide. Inside HBO's Game of Throne showcases hundreds of unpublished set photos, production and costume designs, storyboard and props and show writer Bryan Cogman has interviewed all the key actors and crew members to capture the best scripted and unscripted moments from the first two seasons. Fans of the books will get to dive even deeper into the world of Westeros through detailed maps, family trees, a dissection of the Dothraki language and histories of the world's essential realms, from Winterfell to The Iron Islands. With a foreword by George R.R. Martin, Inside HBO's Game of Thrones is an exclusive window into this unprecedented television series."

We're going to be hit with 192 pages, over 300 colour images and photographs, 8-page full-colour gatefold, and a debossed padded case with foil stamping. In short, it's going to be even more pimp than Tyrion Lannister. The catch, sadly, is that the book won't be out til October, but considering we'll be waiting a whole 'nother year for season 3 (*sobs*), that's a fairly tolerable period.

You can preorder your very own copy over at Book Depository.
