The Game of Thrones production involves a very significant British contribution in its realisation and promotes the British TV and film industry. The Game of Thrones Presentation Pack marks this contribution and recognises the very considerable number of British and International fans of the series.
Each of the ten special stamps in the Game of Thrones issue have been custom designed in unprecedented detail and centre on an individual character. Each a complex montage of multiple images from the series, the ten bespoke images embody the crux of each character’s story. The colour of each stamp compliments the next, aligning with the character and their environment. The characters’ photographs all echo a portrait style engaging with the audience, whilst the typeface is inspired by the opening titles of the Game of Thrones series.
Sansa Stark is depicted in front of the aftermath of battle at Winterfell, Jon Snow stands vigilant in the ice at The Wall and Eddard Stark is portrayed with a Weirwood tree in the Godswood of Winterfell. Olenna Tyrell is seen in the sea view garden of Kings Landing while a stern Tywin Lannister is pictured in the small council chamber. Wildfire lighting the Battle of the Blackwater provides a dramatic backdrop to Tyrion Lannister, his sister Cersei stands ahead of the Iron Throne in The Great Hall. In Braavos Arya stark holds Needle aloft outside the House of Black and White and Jaime Lannister stands ready in armour in front of The Great Sept of Baelor. Across the narrow sea, in Meereen, dragons circle The Great Pyramid as Daenerys Targaryen looks on.
The design of the Presentation Pack is based on HBO’s map of Westeros and depicts key locations from Game of Thrones through a series of detailed illustrations. The inner part of the pack centres around Westeros, drawing on central settings such as King’s Landing and Winterfell, whereas the rear focusses on Essos and includes brief biographies on each of the ten character stamps. The Game of Thrones Presentation Pack includes the Game of Thrones Miniature Sheet featuring non-human characters. The Night King and White Walkers, Giants, Direwolves and Dragons adorn the 4 x 1st Class Special Stamps united by the Iron Throne Definitive 1st Class Postage Stamp at the centre of the sheet.
