The Houses of Westeros poster
“After getting sucked into the Song of Ice and Fire series of fantasy novels by watching HBO’s “Game of Thrones,” I became intrigued by author George R.R. Martin’s in-depth descriptions of each character’s heraldry, and the ways in which their symbols seemed to establish a “brand” for the story’s families.
I hadn’t seen a design take on the sigils that I was fond of, and thus began a personal mission to craft an icon for each of them. Of course, there’s hundreds of crests described in the texts, so a comprehensive collection was tricky and some lesser houses didn’t quite make the cut. Sorry Manderlys of White Harbor.”
