Since 2009, fans of George R.R. Martin's A Song of Ice and Fire series have enjoyed yearly calendars depicting various places, people and things from his epic fantasy series, rendered by a variety of talented artists. 2024 has just begun, but fans are already looking forward to the 2025 calendar, edited by Eddie Mendoza, a senior concept artist at Apple and a contributor to The Rise of the Dragon: An Illustrated History of the Targaryen Dynasty. Check out his website here.

Martin's minions (that's the name he gives his employees, or maybe they name they gave themselves, it's unclear) took to the author's Not a Blog to reveal new information about the 2025 calendar. "From Skagos to Qarth, the Water Gardens to the Nightfort, journey across Westeros and Essos with artist Eddie Mendoza, who brings us both new takes on some of the classic series locations as well as never-before-seen locales," they write. "With thirteen stunning illustrations, including a bonus fold-out poster, experience the full majesty and sweeping vistas of the Seven Kingdoms and Essos."

We know what the cover looks like right now. Take a peak:

Although we don't know for certain, this looks like Starfall, the ancestral castle of House Dayne, in Dorne. Arthur Dayne, who duel-wielded swords in a fight against a young Ned Stark in a flashback on Game of Thrones, hailed from Starfall. Ned Stark was rumored to have had an affair with Arthur's sister Ashara Dayne around the time of Robert's Rebellion.

It's a very pretty illustration, and there are 12 more where that came from. The 2025 Song of Ice and Fire calendar will be available for pre-order on July 23, 2024. When it is, you can order it here.
