Game of Thrones – Sigils of the Houses

Created by Darrin Crescenzi limited edition poster with gold foil stamp.

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.”
