The Folio Society to Publish George R. R. Martin’s “A Song of Ice and Fire” Series

London — The Folio Society is delighted to announce they will be publishing the entire series of George R. R. Martin’s epic saga A Song of Ice and Fire, starting with the first in the series, A Game of Thrones, on 16th July 2019.

A Game of Thrones will be illustrated by award-winning artist Jonathan Burton and introduced by best-selling fantasy author Joe Abercrombie.

Since the epic Battle of Winterfell episode in the latest season of Game of Thrones aired on HBO two weeks ago, the Cushing Library at Texas A & M University has seen its own horde lining up outside its walls: fans excited to see a particular dagger that plays a key part in the episode. (No spoilers here in case you're still catching up, so we'll leave it at that).

While we are always told not to collect books based on assumptions of future value, all of us make the occasional purchase with an eye to future profit.  Collecting based on your personal interests remains the best policy.  But when you're around old books long enough, you can hardly deny yourself the occasional speculative purchase. And thus buying rare books is similar to buying stocks.
