A sumptuous illustrated journey through Terry Pratchett's Discworld, a companion volume to The Last Hero.
Paul Kidby is Terry Pratchett's artist of choice when it comes to the Discworld, and so who better to take you on a guided tour of the characters that people Pratchett's phenomenally successful world? 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 Terry Pratchett himself will provide the words to every picture, while Paul Kidby occasionally steps out from behind his canvas to describe what influences his choice of subject matter and where he gets his ideas from.
The Art of Discworld will be a 112-page large-size hardback to sit alongside Pratchett and Kidby's bestselling The Last Hero. No Discworld fan will want to be without this beautiful gift book.
