Game of Thrones Series

Postby Imrahil » Feb Wed 19, 2014 12:03 am

Series 1-3 completed.
Note: If you haven't seen Seasons 1-3, avoid reading my explanations as they contain mild spoilers.

I hate that the official covers are all over the place in terms of design, and I also hate digipacks. So I've sized these for 6-disc elite cases, which will hold extra blu-ray discs (but not the dvds/digital copies--I sell those off anyway).  

I know some of the stores have special slipcovers with the houses art, so I kind of wanted to run with that idea.  Each season will have a house for that season (preferably, one which has something to do with the major events of that season, but that may not always be possible).

I have attempted to use HBO's official sigils for the houses, even when they differ from those of the book (Stark's is notably different), and to replicate a cloth texture for both the banners and the sigils (adding "embroidery" for the edges of the logos).



The front is the banner and the House Words, the back shows an image of that house's family seat and the members of the house, and a quote that's relevant to the series.

Season 1: House Stark
Obviously they're our "gateway" into the world, and they split up to various points around Westeros and carry the narrative with them. So here's House Stark, front and back.

Season 2: House Baratheon
The civil war that dominates this season is driven by two true Baratheons (Stannis and Renly) and one Baratheon in name (Joffrey), so it seemed fair to give them this cover.  Even though Robert is gone, his shadow looms large over all the events of the season, so I included him on the back.

Season 3: House Lannister
Season 3 is probably Lannister's high point in the narrative, and in particular they have a very momentous scene in Episode 9.  A lot of the talk in this season is about how the Lannisters pay their debts.

Season 4: House Tyrell
House Tyrell will dominate the narrative in season 4, so expect a green cover with the Rose of Highgarden on the front.

Preliminary planning is for Season 5 to maybe have House Greyjoy on it, though I guess it could possibly be House Tully?  Season 6 might be House Martell, and then Season 7 would be House Targaryen (assuming we get that far).  If the show keeps going I'm not sure what I'd do, because that's really the main "Great houses" that take part in the war.

A superb set - and i'm glad you are planning ahead with future season. The green cover for season 4 sounds wonderful - could you make it a rich dark green - should look fabulous.
