Game of Thrones will not be returning for its third season until March 2013, but here's something to whet your appetite in the meantime. Next month, HBO will be releasing Inside HBO's Game of Thrones, a visual companion to the series that goes behind the scenes of the book-inspired drama to explore the complex transformation of the original best-selling A Song Of Ice And Fire novels by George R.R. Martin into a three-dimensional reality on the small screen.

Show devotees will have access to the details and concepts behind the sets, props, costumes and photography with chapters like "Costuming Cersei," the devious character played by Lena Headey; interviews with the cast and crew by author Bryan Cogman, one of the series' co-writers; and insider knowledge of the locations, languages and historical nuances that went into recreating the fantastical realm of Westeros. The full-color book, with an introduction by series creators David Benioff and D.B. Weiss, accompanies the text with 300 photographs for a complete immersive experience. Take an exclusive sneak peek at some of the stills below, featuring Kit Harington as Jon Snow (pictured above), Peter Dinklage as Tyrion Lannister (pictured below) and Emilia Clarke as Daenerys Targaryen (pictured below).

Inside HBO's Game of Thrones will be published on October 1.
