Believe it or not, the first A Song of Ice and Fire novel, A Game of Thrones, turns 20 years old today. With its birthday, its publisher, Bantam Spectra, and its author, George R.R. Martin, have announced that the fantasy classic will receive a special 20th Anniversary Illustrated Edition.

It will be officially named A Game of Thrones: The Illustrated Edition and it will keep the story of the original novel intact. Bantam Spectra has added new elements to the original, including a new introduction from comedian John Hodgman and 73 black and white illustrations, as well as eight full-color pieces.

Artists include John Picacio, Gary Gianni, Didier Graffet, Paul Youll, and many others.

The A Game of Thrones: The Illustrated Edition release date is set for October 18, and you can pre-order it now via Amazon.
