I'm so excited for this! :D I thought it would release on the same day over here, but alas, no bookstore has it in stock. And hence I wait another day (but that's OK! XD)

I'm expecting mine to show up on my doorstep any minute now. I know what I'm doing this evening. This new tome, my favorite chair and a glass of Dornish Red are involved!

Great news indeed. I pre-ordered the book almost a year ago, and finally got it today. Thanks a lot!

One thing I was hoping to find in it was the official chronology of events in "A Song of Ice and Fire" books. Alas, it wasn't there. Is there any hope that one day it will be published?

Big day for you George.

I know you have been talking about this book for close to 10 years now, and working on it...who knows. I know it's not Son of Kong, and you completed your part a while ago, but seeing this book released must be relieving to have another (slightly larger) monkey off your back.

This is beautiful, I own two first editions of A Game of Thrones that I picked up in two separate charity stores years ago. From that moment, long before HBO, I was hooked! This is really a great addition.

The World of Ice & Fire
I'm so excited, waiting for it to get here. :D

I received my copy this morning at work, the whole day I was so excited to open the package. Now I rush home, lounge on the sofa and start learning about my favorite world's secrets :)

My copy is due here today courtesy of Amazon. Can't wait to read it. :)

Very excited. Love fake history!
I've had it pre-ordered for a long time. Very eager to see how this project turned out. No doubt it'll be well worth the wait, as with all things Ice & Fire.

got my Kindle version about 11:00 last night (I travel constantly so I buy books in both physical and digital...I like the annotations capabilities on the Kindle App)

Inexplicably Amazon appears to have canceled my pre-order for the HC (Probably during one of the release date changes) so rather than wait 2 days I will be going to Costco to get it in my greedy little hands! :)

I'm really looking forward to the Iron Islands section! :)

World of Ice & Fire
Great book, fantastic (and I mean fantastic) art! About 50 pages in, required reading for the completist or (in my case as an archaeologist) 'history' buffs!

Background art and compliments
I just made my own LiveJournal account after seeing the video. I just wanted to say that the scene in the background of Torrhen Stark kneeling on the banks of the Trident (I believe), and other preview images I have seen all look like the kind of art I would want on my wall, in a gallery even. Are posters of these pages being released as well?

I also want to give you my compliments for the A Song of Ice & Fire books, which have been brilliant thus far (I haven't gotten a hold of all of the prequel stories as I can't find them in the local bookstores). Obviously I can't wait to see The Winds of Winter, but as a complete and unrushed product.

Preordered it at Amazon.de and got it today. A shame the book I got was damaged, so I have already wrapped it up again and ordered a replacement.
It looked really great at first glance, but I obviously haven't seen much more of it. I can't wait to get the replacement.

I am flipping through it right now and this is just... gorgeous! More than worth the price. I will treasure this forever!

The New Book
Guess what just arrived in the mail from Amazon? :) :) :) :)

George!!!! I cannot believe how gorgeous this is. OMG! You weren't kidding, and honestly, you undersold how insane this really looks. I watched the video from 92y (im in NY, but couldn't make the event), and even seeing some of the artwork ahead of time did NOT prepare me for what this thing was really going to be like. Even the binding is top notch! Wonderful!
