Game of Thrones Season 5 promo

An official Game of Thrones coloring book is being released this fall. It features 45 different illustrations based on the series from illustrators including Yvonne Gilbert, John Howe, Tomislav Tomic, Adam Stower, and Levi Pinfold.

The official name of the coloring book is George R. R. Martin's Official A Game of Thrones Coloring Book. There is some irony in releasing a coloring book based on this book and television series due to its often violent and gruesome nature. The L.A. Times reports that it is being touted as an adult coloring book.

The coloring book is being published by Bantam Books. The Guardian reports that adult coloring books are a big current trend in the publishing industry. However, most of them contain calming scenic images and are meant to be therapeutic. The Game of Thrones coloring book will be anything but calm, especially with George R.R. Martin personally overseeing the illustrations.

The Amazon.com listing for the official Game of Thrones coloring book says it is scheduled to be released on October 27th. It will likely be a popular coloring book for Game of Thrones fans this coming holiday. Those giving it as a gift may want to consider including lots of dark colored crayons as well as many red crayons.
