Gorgeous art brings the castles of George R.R. Martin's Westeros to life

We can't wait until HBO's adaptation of George R.R. Martin's A Game Of Thrones hits our screens. But here's something to make the wait bearable: an exclusive first look at a new calendar featuring gorgeous art of the saga's castles.

We've been reading Martin's original books in anticipation of the HBO version, and the richness and breakneck pace of the saga is blowing us away. If you've read the books, you'll know that the different castles of Westeros are like characters in themselves, from the frosty stoicism of Winterfell to the inaccessible Eyrie.

The Curse of Millhaven

The artistic renderings of fantasy castles never live up to my mental images. I always imagine something like a really nice version of an actual castle or city instead of some contraption made of weightless blocks. I am inclined to blame the period of faerie-tale castle building that took place after castles stopped being a really good defense and starting being a house for nobility.

Number five looks like it would slide right off that rock if anyone sneezed.
