Dabel Brothers Publishing is proud to announce the publication of the first ever-illustrated calendar from the epic fantasy series, A Song of Ice and Fire, written by George R. R. Martin. A New York Times #1 Bestseller, Martin’s fantasy series has garnered popular and critical praise since the first novel, A Game of Thrones, saw publication in 1996 and has recently been optioned for development by HBO.
The incomparable Michael Komarck, an artist who has amazed fans with his faithful, detailed artwork inspired by A Song of Ice and Fire, illustrates the twelve images in the calendar. His renderings for the calendar are immaculately executed depictions of some of the most popular characters of the series and bring to vivid life some of the most memorable scenes in the epic that’s taken the publishing world by storm.
As the only calendar sanctioned by Martin, Dabel Brothers Publishing’s A Song of Ice and Fire 2009 Calendar is unarguably a rare treat, it will be distributed to the Direct Market and booksellers. 500 copies will feature an exclusive, Jon Snow cover and only 250 of them will be numbered, as well as personally signed by George R.R. Martin himself. These exclusives will be sold exclusively from Dabel Brothers Publishing’s on-line storefront.
“I am a long time fan of ASOIAF, says Dabel Brothers Vice President, Les Dabel, “being able to help bring it to life visually is a dream come true.”
The A Song of Ice and Fire 2009 Calendar will be available in December 2008, well in time for the holiday season.
