A sumptuous illustrated journey through Terry Pratchett s DISCWORLD; a companion volume to THE LAST HERO
In The Art of Discworld, Terry Pratchett takes us on a guided tour of the Discworld, courtesy of his favourite Discworld artist, Paul Kidby. Following on from The Last Hero, The Art of Discworld is a lavish 112-page large format, sumptuously illustrated look at all things Discworldian. Terry Pratchett provides the written descriptions while Paul Kidby illustrates the world that has made Pratchett one of the best-selling authors of all time. Here you will find favourites old and new: the City Watch, including Vimes, Carrot and Angua, the three witches - Granny Weatherwax, Nanny Ogg and Magrat Garlick - and the denizens of the Unseen University Library, not forgetting the Librarian, of course: they're all here in sumptuous colour, together with the places: Ankh-Morpork, Lancre, Uberwald and more. No Discworld fan will want to be without this beautiful gift book.
Terry Pratchett lives in Wiltshire. He won the Carnegie Award for the Discworld novel Maurice and His Amazing Educated Rodents. He was made an OBE in 1998.
