George R.R. Martin has tweeted the cover for the 2019 A Song of Ice and Fire calendar! It features a brooding image by artist John Jude Palencar.
Martin enthused about the calendar in his tweet, saying:
It’s a brand new year, and we’re proud to announce next years official calendar. 2019’s calendar will feature the stunning work of John Jude Palencar, who will bring his uniquely haunting visions of the SoI&F world eleven months from now.
Palencar has previously worked on Christopher Paolini’s Inheritance Trilogy and Jaqueline Carey’s Kushiel’s Legacy series, among many other titles, and has won awards including Gold and Silver Medals from the Society of Illustrators. You can see more Palencar’s work here!
Now about that cover image: Do we think that’s Jon Snow? Dolorous Edd? Perhaps an Anonymous Brooder? We will find out when the calendar hits stores on July 17th.
