This artbook is about the entire pre-story of „Game of Thrones“ based on the book „The world of Ice and Fire“ from George R.R. Martin, Elio M. García Jr. and Linda Antonsson.

The high quality illustrated book will feature 80 unseen artworks including some fascinating making-of stories.

In 2015, 40 artists from all over the world came together to uncover the pre-story of „Game of Thrones“ with a unique series of artworks. Many locations of this world were already shown in the series, but the largest part of this pre-story is still undiscovered. We worked over 3 years to develope these area of the map.

Most of our artists work for the series "Game of Thrones” since season 2.  They’ve received six Emmys for their work. The artists are known for there work on movies like Spiderman, Avengers and The Dark Night.. 

A regular book publisher could never dream to bring together such a lineup of artists and have them create such a huge number of artworks. Only thanks to the fact that it is a grassroots idea of the artists that made you marvel at "Game of Thrones", this book might become a reality. And you.

For without your backing, there won't be an artbook. Ever. We, the artists, have done what we could. Now it's your turn.

For more informations about the artists: unseen-westeros.com/artists/

You will NEVER find "UNSEEN WESTEROS" in book shops on high street. We are NOT going to sell it through Amazon or other online platforms. This Kickstarter campaign is the only opportunity to secure this limited book. These will only go to you, our backers.

Important: The rewards have all the old shipping fees (unfortunately we cannot change it). We did get the right amounts from our logistic partner. You find them in the FAQs"

All 40 artists have spent the past 3 years developing the artworks without any payment. Our major goal with this book is to finance a four-day long exhibition with all the artworks in super high-resolution pictures!

We want to bring to life a world full of experiences surrounding the artworks. The visitor will listen to an audio guide which provides the stories of the four continents, allowing the visitor to feel as if they are traveling through these distant countries. Unique music is composed for each room to create an even more intense atmosphere. The exhibition is from the 24th to the 27th of January at the historic factory in Berlin - Reinickendorf.

 The following is a transparent calculation to finance the Artbook:

1. Book-Printing 17.500 Euro  | high-quality printing by an offset printery / 150 pages / hardcover / 170gsm photo paper

2. Book-Design 5.000 Euro

3. Handling and Kickstarter Fees ca. 2.500 Euro

Risks and challenges

Publication Date:

The artbook will be produced in January 2019. The printing process will take about 1 month. This means you’ll receive the book at the end of February.
