at georgres not a blog he has a pic of the inside of the cover depicting awesomeness. http://grrm.livejournal.com/

                                                                                                                                         http://ic.pics.livej...96_original.jpg

 

now lets speculate where this actually is

 

my first thought was valyria, with the statues of dragons

 

but as i keep looking at it, it looks really cold, so it could also be our first pic of the lands of always winter and where the mysterious Others sleep tight

Plus, there is what appears to be a mountain in the background which is probably Dragonmount.

The person has lightly-colored hair, so it's most likely either a Targaryen or Lannister. It's probably a Targaryen, though.

i thought it could have just been a random mountain way up north with possibly more around but u just arent able to see with it seeing to be a very cloudy day

 

it just looks so eerie that i thought it had to be the Others domain

 

but with the birds also flying around in the picture i know it cant be up north so DS it is.

Isn't Dragonstone supposed to be shaped like a dragon, or I am missremembering here?

But otherwise, can't think of a castle who it could be elsewise.

The castles are dragon-shaped, for sure. (Not the entire island. )

If that is Dragonstone than I can understand why Stannis was bitter about getting that, only a Targaryen would live in something like that it's freaky.

Much more important!

Is there anyone who got to take a look inside one of the copies and is willing to tell us what he/she read? :)

For the rest, it should be Dragonstone, you can see gargoyles.

Note Robert's warhammer in the background. :)

It is indeed Dragonstone, by Phillip Straub. He has a small version of it on his site, image 51 in the gallery.

He's contributed another piece depicting a different place, as well... in fact, I see a not-final version of it is in the gallery too. ;)

I'm having a difficult time picking up Roberts warhammer, where is it? Left or right page?

 

 

Oops, thought you ment the war hammer was in the book picture

We'd know by now; if there's nothing on here, or reddit... Well, it's almost nonexistent. :D
