Overview

Artist Paul Kidby's own voyage through Terry Pratchett's legendary Discworld, THE ART OF DISCWORLD brings together -- in glorious color and intricate black and white -- a cornucopia of characters that have won the hearts of millions of adoring readers the world over.

Discworld might have started out in the imagination of its Creator, the incomparable Terry Pratchett, but over the past 30 books, it has taken on a life of its own. Floating through space on the backs of four elephants standing on a giant turtle, it's a world bursting with magic, a land of contrasts and extremes, from the bustling metropolis of Ankh-Morpork, the oldest city on the Disc, to the ancient empire of Klatch, where there are fifteen words for assasination. There's the mysterious continent XXXX, or Fourcks, where nothing anyone has ever heard is really an exaggeration, and the dark country of Uberwald, where things do go bump in the night. And then there are Discworld's inhabitants: the witches Granny Weatherwax, Nanny Ogg, Magrat Garlick (now a Queen, of course). There are the Monks of History and the ancient Vampyre families. There are great heros, like Cohen the Barbarian and his Hoarde, Sam Vines, Captain Carrot and the men of the City Watch . . . and there are the ordinary folk like Cut-Me-Own-Throat-Dibber, Foul Ole Ron, the Igors . . . and then there's Death.

Brought to life by Paul Kidby, the artist who collaborated with Pratchett on the illustrated fable The Last Hero, THE ART OF DISCWORLD is the ultimate companion volume to Terry Pratchett's bestselling Discworld series.
