Today a new Game of Thrones related post, this time with an awesome poster created by Darrin Crescenzi. In the poster you see Darrin’s interpretation of various House Sigils from George R.R. Martin’s A Song of Ice and Fire series of fantasy novels.
After getting sucked into the Song of Ice and Fire series of fantasy novels by watching HBO’s “Game of Thrones,” I became intrigued by author George R.R. Martin’s in-depth descriptions of each major character’s heraldry, and the ways in which their symbols seemed to establish a “brand” for each of the story’s families. I hadn’t seen a design take on the sigils that I was fond of, and so a personal mission to craft an icon for each of them began. Of course, there’s hundreds of crests, so some lesser houses didn’t quite make the cut. Sorry Manderlys of White Harbor. -Darrin Crescenzi
