Book

Game Of Thrones has been a widely anticipated colouring book – preorders for the book are second only to Lost Ocean on sites such as Book Depository. 
The book is a good size, square at 25cm x 25cm and 96 pages. Similar in size to popular books such as Secret Garden and Enchanted Forest, it is a good size. The cover is a firm card, with a half coloured design from the book.

The paper is a good thickness, and I haven’t experienced any bleeding with water based markers at all. Pages are double sided, but each double page contains an image and a quote from the book on the facing page. Some images do enter the spine, which is a shame. The spine is glue bound however, so it will become more pliable with use.

Images

Flicking through the book, I immediately recognised each of the images – a good sign for a book that is transplanted from a novel/TV show. The book begins with crests from each house in Westeros, with a quote describing something about that house. 

After the crests, the images become more people/creature focused – Daenerys’ dragons taking flight, Melisandre staring down at the colourist, a giant in battle. 

The range of images is a fantastic representation of the book and movies, with a nice variety.

The images are quite intricate, although there is a nice variety for all colourists. The crests are a good beginning point! 

The art has been created by five different artists with distinct styles. This is a positive to me – 5 different interpretations of different scenes and people makes for a nice variety of styles and images while still being consistent.

Are you a fan of Game of thrones? Get this book. Never seen it, but read the books? Definitely get this book. The style of images means that you can focus on one image to distract yourself from pain, or lose yourself in it when you are having a bad day.

This book is quite intricate, so if you have problems with concentration, this may not be the book for you. However, I found it helpful to focus on one small area in the book. 

I think this book is a high quality accompaniment to the TV show, and would be great for any fan of the show or just plain fantasy.

  1. I have this book and I absolutely adore it. It can get a bit too in depth sometimes, so I have a simpler colouring book that I use when I need a break. Saying that, the pages in this book are absolutely stunning and I am thoroughly enjoying doing it. One thing that is an issue for me is that being a huge fan of the books and show I feel the need to stick as closely as possible to the colours from them which can become a little creatively restrictive. Other people don’t seem to share this so maybe it’s just a weird form of OCD lol!
