Thanks to talented artists like Johanna Basford, colouring books have somehow become an incredibly popular pastime again — and not just for kids. Bookstores are now flooded with intricately illustrated black and white books targeted at adults, including an upcoming collection featuring scenes from A Game of Thrones.
Hopefully there aren’t actually any six-year-olds familiar enough with A Game of Thrones to put this on their Christmas lists this year, but the rest of us only have to wait until October 27 to pick up a copy for about $US11.
Entertainment Weekly got an early look at some of the 96 pages of intricate black and white illustrations in the new A Game of Thrones colouring book from artists like Yvonne Gilbert, John Howe, Tomislav Tomić, Adam Stower, and Levi Pinfold. Ladies and gentlemen, start your pencil sharpeners.
The show’s cinematographers and post-production artists already do an amazing job at bringing the series to life with lavish colour palettes that make you feel like you’ve been taken to another world. But with a coloured pencil or marker in hand, you’re now free to create your own version of Westeros. Who hasn’t thought that Jon Snow would look better with green skin?
