I hope someday a Maester of the Citadel (GRRM) or his Acolytes (Elio & Linda) write a heraldry book, heavily illustrated, mentioning the words, heirlooms (famous blades, horns and other artifacts) and seats of all existing and extinct houses (i.e. all those mentioned in ASOIAF, the wiki and the app). Some houses could even have their origins, famous members and traditions detailed. 

 

Who would pay for such a work?

Thanks, the Heraldry section of Westeros.org is a valid resource, but I was thinking about something like the upcoming world book, with large table book format and written from the perspective of a maester.

I asked in the App thread if they would be updating the House section with more family trees and info. New heraldry would fit nicely on there aswell.

More heraldry would indeed be awesome. And it should be combined with as many House Words as possible as well.

I have looked at the link posted above many times, but I get what you mean.  I would love a nicely printed book with everything printed out to look at.
