The Art of George R. R. Martin's A Song of Ice and Fire is a collection of art inspired by George R. R. Martin's bestselling fantasy series A Song of Ice and Fire, produced by a variety of different artists and illustrators. The first volume was published by Fantasy Flight Games in 2005. It was revised and reprinted in 2011, alongside the release of a second volume in the series. Both volumes have been released in French by publisher Soleil, and Spanish by publisher Edge.

Each book contains 192 pages of art and accompanying text, including nearly 200 illustrations and a foreword written by Martin. Pieces from various board and card games such as A Game of Thrones: The Card Game, Battles of Westeros, and A Game of Thrones: The Board Game are included.

Volume I features characters and popular locations from the novels, and was substantially revised between the 1st edition printed in 2005, and the 2nd edition released in 2011. The 2011 edition omits several pages of Targaryen dynasty character portraits, as well as some other works and fan cartoons found in the 2005 edition. However, it also contains a number of additional new artworks, as well as larger versions of some of the 2005 pieces.

Volume II focuses on the Houses of the Seven Kingdoms, following its history and providing background on the various groups which play a role in the game of thrones.
