HBO has partnered with publishing company Insight Editions to bring fans Game of Thrones: The Costumes, an in-depth look at the creation of the iconic show’s costumes. From the practical, layered fabrics of Winterfell to the finery of King’s Landing, the costumes of Game of Thrones played an integral part in bringing Westeros and beyond to life.
New York Times Best-selling author Gina McIntyre and award-winning costume designer Michele Clapton have teamed up to introduce fans to the world of Game of Thrones fashion. Clapton received considerable acclaim for her work on Game of Thrones, winning four Emmy Awards, a BAFTA Television Craft Award, and four successive Costume Designers Guild Awards. Clapton also created acclaimed costumes for The Crown, for which she won an Emmy Award, a BAFTA for Best Costume Design, and a Costume Designers Guild Award for Outstanding Period Television Series. She was awarded the NYWIFT Designing Women Award in 2019.
McIntyre’s other books include Guillermo Del Toro’s The Shape of Water: Creating a Fairy Tale for Troubled Times, The Art of Ready Player One, and Star Wars Icons: Han Solo. She’s also had writing appear in the Los Angeles Times, the Hollywood Reporter, and Entertainment Weekly.
