Terry Pratchett's Discworld Imaginarium

Terry Pratchett's Discworld Imaginarium, a novel by Paul Kidby
Book details

Paul Kidby was Pratchett's artist of choice and once described his lively, colourful illustrations as:

The closest anyone's got to how I see the characters

He's been drawing Discworld for over fifteen years, including the superbly illustrated Last Hero, not to mention The Art of Discworld and Terry Pratchett's Discworld Colouring Book. Terry Pratchett's Discworld Imaginarium collects the finest of his discworld illustrations, including 40 pieces that have never been seen before.

It's a spectacular, big and solid volume, lovingly crafted and full of Kirby's finest pictures of Discworld. Some are sketches while others full colour prints, all drawn with the careful skill and imagination of the artist.

Kirby writes a thoughtful introduction which provides insight into his work proccesses and his back ground - difficult to believe he has had no formal art training.

The book is divided into the areas of Discworld, from The Chalk through Lancre and Ankh-Morpork to Uberwald and even Death's Domain with each given a brief introduction.

Terry Pratchett's passing still leaves a big hole in my literary world, as I'm sure it does with many people and this Discworld Imaginarium is a fitting tribute to his genius.
