HBO and Insight Editions will release 4 new Game of Thrones books in 2019

Game of Thrones is now less than a month away and the way insane battles have been teased, I’m getting a vibe we aren’t getting a second trailer. HBO definitely wouldn’t want to give away much of the stuff ahead of April. Though this may be a weird marketing strategy, HBO wouldn’t want fans to lose hope. This is why they recently announced Game of Thrones 2019 Publishing Program in collaboration with Insight Editions.

Some fans might wonder that this might be related to George RR Martin‘s new book in-line the Winds of Winter – the new installment to ‘A Song of Ice and Fire’ series. So we confirm that this is a completely new set of 4 signature books by Insights Editions to commemorate the era-defining hit television series Game of Thrones.

According to Raoul Goff, founder and publisher at Insight Editions,

“We’ve been faithful fans of Game of Thrones for many years and have enjoyed a fruitful partnership with HBO for nearly just as long…We’re thrilled to be able to participate in the grand farewell of one of the greatest TV shows ever made.”

The award-winning entertainment publisher has announced four books to be included in the program include:

  1. Game of Thrones: The Storyboards by William Simpson, lead storyboard artist for Game of Thrones.
  2. The Art of Game of Thrones 
  3. The Photography of Game of Thrones by Helen Sloan, the principal unit photographer for Game of Thrones.
  4. Game of Thrones: The Costumes by costume designer Michele Clapton.

Game of Thrones: The Storyboards

Releasing in Spring 2019, the book is priced at $60 and you can pre-0rder it right now. William Simpson has compiled a collection of behind-the-scenes pivotal moments and conceptual artworks which ultimately made their way to the TV series. This book will be a guide to all artistic developments brought about the series ranging from the Iron Throne to the newly built Dragonstone set.

The Art of Game of Thrones

Filled with gorgeous illustrations and artworks from Game of Thrones, this book gives you a picture of the amount of hard work put in together by artists who’ve worked to make the series one of a kind during its era. This book will be released at the fall of 2019 and will be available at a price of $75. Described as “a multitude of fascinating and beautifully rendered images and previously unpublished works of art”, this book is surely for you if you’re interested in finding out how thousands of artists worked hard every season for 9 years to bring life to the fictional world of Westeros to life.

The Photography of Game of Thrones

Photography on Game of Thrones is the basics Helen Sloan has been putting into series since Season 1. Every frame, the perfect angle, and clicks, the Photography of Game of Thrones drives you off to the most iconic shots and stills taken from the series. Priced at $75  and with a release date of fall of 2019, this book will give you an exclusive look at some of your favourite characters and moments with splendid detailing. According to the official press release, this book “captures in striking detail the scope and nuance of the show, celebrating a world of iconic characters, shocking moments, breathtaking locations, and much more.”

Game of Thrones: The Costumes

If you’ve been a great fan of the costumes used on Game of Thrones, then this book is truly for you. This book, priced at $75 and to be released by the fall of 2019, will feature an imminent collection of back-stage work done by artists to design the attires on Game of Thrones. From the cloaks of the North to the Crimson Red gowns Cersei Lannister wore in Game of Thrones, this book will feature beautifully detailed photographs of the costumes and behind-the-scenes details. The hard work put together by the Emmy-winning costume designer Michele Clapton has compiled in this book.

More information related to all four books will be revealed by HBO and Insight Editions soon. Till then we shall wait till April 14 for the Final Season of Game of Thrones, which has totally been hyped up by teasers and promotional photos.

Game of Thrones actor Rose Leslie to play lead in BBC's thriller

Game of Thrones has given plenty of promising actors to the entertainment industry. Rose Leslie who played the role of Ygritte on the show is one of them. Her ferocious portrayal of Ygritte won her many fans around the globe. Her chemistry with Kit Harrington a.k.a. Jon Snow was really appreciated. Leslie has now landed a lead role in BBC’s next thriller and we can’t keep calm! Read on.

After getting some great success with their previous thriller Bodyguard, BBC has now finalised the casting for their next thriller Vigil. As per Deadline, apart from Leslie, Vigil will also star Connor Swindells of Sex Education, Shaun Evans of Endeavour and Martin Compston of Line of Duty among others.

Vigil is written by Tom Edge, the BAFTA-nominated writer of feature film Judy and the creator of Netflix comedy Lovesick. James Strong of Broadchurch and Isabelle Sieb of Shetland are going to be the directors.

As per the report, Vigil is a six-part thriller from World Productions from the makers of Line Of Duty and Bodyguard. It will tell the fictional story of how the disappearance of a Scottish fishing trawler and a death on-board a Trident nuclear submarine creates conflict between the police, the Royal Navy, and intelligence services.

Well, it surely is great news for the entire Game of Thrones community. While the previous thriller of BBC,  Bodyguard, brought great acclaim to another Game of Thrones star Richard Madden. We hope that Vigil brings the same kind of success to Leslie.
