The Brandon news train does not stop! We have a bunch of things this week, like this spiffy Bridge Four Poster, styled like a movie poster. There's some new jewelry by Badali. Brandon's YALLFEST keynote now has a VOD. And lastly, just a reminder since it is time-sensitive: the Tor.com free Way of Kings ebook ends today. They extended their giveaway due to some site difficulties on the 4th.
Badali Jewelry Steel Alphabet Bar Pendants
First up, Badali Jewelry, who makes officially licensed Brandon-related jewelry (and more) has Steel Alphabet Bar Pendants. You can customize them with whatever phrase you like. On the 2.5" bar, you can get twelve symbols, and on the 2" one, nine symbols. This isn't unlike their custom Steel Alphabet rings, which are also spiffy. These bar pendants are $129 for the 2" one and $149 for the 2.5" bar.
Badali Jewelry. Amusingly, they spell out "I AM A STICK EDY" and "SURVIVE".
Bridge Four Poster
For years, Brandon has wanted to have a movie poster showing Bridge Four. The idea was to show the bridge crew on a plateau, then have images of them as Radiants floating above. And now, such a poster exists. It will come with every anniversary edition The Way of Kings in the Kickstarter this summer.
Isaac Stewart, Art Director, says:
I held onto this idea for a while, keeping my eye out for just the right artist to create it, then at Illuxcon, I met the kind and amazing Zack Stella. We got to talking fantasy novels, and he recommended The Way of Kings to me before I got around to mentioning my connection to the books. I’ve loved Zack’s work for quite some time, and he turned out to be the perfect fit for creating this illustration.
Working with him was awesome. He instinctively grasped the aesthetics of the Stormlight Archive while at the same time bringing his trademark style to it. Every copy of the Dragonsteel edition of The Way of Kings sold through our summer Kickstarter will come with this nearly 24” x 36” movie-style poster folded up with it. I love the result, and I hope you will too.

And here's a labeled version:
In case you want more information on the Kickstarter, Isaac and Kara did a livestream for JordanCon describing a bunch of details, and Paleo wrote us a great news article breaking down all the information.
