Calling all Game of Thrones fans! HBO have a few wonderful projects coming your way. Today, we’re going to take a look at HBO’s upcoming book Game of Thrones: The Costumes.
The massive show that recently ended with it’s 8th and final season has been one of the biggest shows ever to grace our screens.
We’re talking big budgets, special effects, spectacular set pieces, and incredibly fight scenes. However, one aspect that has always intrigued fans, including myself, are the costumes.

Game of Thrones: The Costumes celebrates the incredible artistry involved in creating each outfit with beautifully detailed photographs of individual costumes and behind-the-scenes details.
This is a must have for all Game of Thrones fans. The book will be available from November 12, 2019.
