Game of Thrones Iron Throne

Did you know that the sword of the great wizard Gandalf (Ian McKellen) from Peter Jackson’s adaptation of J.R.R. Tolkien’s Lord of the Rings is now but a fragment of the many swords that make up the intimidating Iron Thone in HBO’s Game of Thrones? Do not feel bad. No one did until recently!

A Reddit user recently noticed the sword, which inarguably looks an awful lot like Gandalf’s sword. Whether this was intended by the show’s makers or not, who knows. But it is hard to deny the resemblance.

Gandalf in Steimatzky bookstore ad

Steimatzky teamed up with the Israeli advertising agency ACW Grey Tel-Aviv to create the ads, which all carry the slogan “The right book will always keep you company.” In the ads, the regular people are seen sleeping in a very IKEA bedroom-like setting with copies of the books that the characters appear in, while those characters lie sleeping beside them.
