If you were writing as concise summary of Game of Thrones as possible, "Valar morghulis" wouldn't be far off.
For those of you who can't speak High Valyrian (we sincerely hope that's most of you), it means "All men must die" - the overriding theme of Robert M Ball's brutal-yet-brilliant Beautiful Death series.
Commissioned by HBO to create a poster for each episode of their epic fantasy series, Ball has now finished documenting the demises of all three seasons. The London-based artist has managed to maintain a stunning visual style across all thirty works, but the Red Wedding image is our pick of the bunch. Season one can be found bleeding out here, while season two is slowly festering here.
