John Picacio: A Song of Ice and Fire

A Special Offer for Norwescon Members

Our Artist Guest of Honor John Picacio is making available to Norwescon members very limited edition prints of his artwork from the 2012 George R.R. Martin: A Song of Ice and Fire Calendar. These prints debuted just last weekend at World Horror and we are the next to take advantage of this amazing opportunity.

These five amazing prints are printed on archival paper from the renowned company of Hahnemuhle, who have been making paper since 1584. There will only be 100 of each print produced, each print is signed and numbered, and the most extraordinary thing about owning one of these prints is that John created each print myself, by hand.

Come by and check out Eddard Stark, Jon Snow and Ghost, Sansa Stark and the Hound, Bran Stark, and Melisandre -- any of which would make a wonderful addition to your collections.
