A massive illustrated version of Martin’s first novel, A Game of Thrones, will be released on October 18. The picture above is how George R.R. Martin wants his readers to see when he writes about the seat of power, which was made from a thousand melted-down swords gathered from Targaryen enemies.

The book has a gilded hardcover that’s 896 pages long and is filled with 73 illustrations (old and new) to head off each chapter, plus eight richly detailed color plates.
