Product Description

From the Back Cover

A TOURIST GUIDE TO LANCRE

Not only an artistic and breathtaking view of Lancre but also an interesting and informative guide to one of the Discworld's more, er, picturesque kingdoms.

Granny Weatherwax, Nanny Ogg and Magrat Garlick live there. Lancre could hardly be somewhere ordinary, could it?

Magic glues the Discworld together and a lot of it ends up in Lancre, principal Kingdom of the Ramtop Mountains. Between Uberwald and Whale Bay, the Octarine Grass Country and the Widdershins Ocean lies the most exciting and dangerous terrain in all Discworld. The Ramtops supply Discworld with most of its witches and wizards. The leaves on the trees in the Ramtops move even when there is no breeze. Rocks go for a stroll in the evening. Even the land, at times, seems alive.

The mapp may only be two-dimensional, but watch it very carefully and you might see it jostle about a bit.

TERRY PRATCHETT is Britain's most successful author of comic fantasy, probably the hardest-working writer in the business and a generally all-round good chap.

STEPHEN BRIGGS is none of these, but knows even more about the Discworld than Mr Pratchett which is, when you think about it, very odd.

About the Author

Terry Pratchett is one of the world's most popular authors. His acclaimed novels are bestsellers in the United States and the United Kingdom, and have sold more than 85 million copies worldwide. In January 2009, Queen Elizabeth II appointed Pratchett a Knight Bachelor in recognition of his services to literature. Sir Terry lives in England.

Stephen Briggs is Senior Clinical Lecturer in Social Work and Vice Dean of the Adolescent Department at Tavistock Clinic, London.


Sir Terry Pratchett, the author of more than three dozen novels, is one of the world's best-selling and best-loved novelists writing in the English language. He wrote his first published story when he was 13 and his first novel, THE CARPET PEOPLE, when he was 17. His books have sold more than 85 million copies worldwide. In addition to his phenomenal--and phenomenally popular--Discworld series for adults, Terry is the multi-award-winning author several children's books. These include the books of the BROMELIAD TRILOGY (HarperCollins, 2003), as well as THE WEE FREE MEN (HarperCollins, 2003), A HAT FULL OF SKY (HarperCollins, 2004), WINTERSMITH (HarperCollins, 2006), I SHALL WEAR MIDNIGHT (HarperCollins, 2010), NATION (HarperCollins,2008)--a Michael L. Printz Honor Book, Boston Globe-Horn Book Award winner, and LA Times Book Prize for YA Literature winner--and DODGER (HarperCollins, 2012), for which he won his second Michael L. Printz Honor. He was awarded Britain's highest honor for a children's novel, the Carnegie Medal, for THE AMAZING MAURICE AND HIS EDUCATED RODENTS (HarperCollins, 2001). The recipient of several honorary doctorates, Sir Terry was knighted by Queen Elizabeth II in 2008 for his services to literature. And in 2011, he received the Margaret A. Edwards Award for Lasting Contributions to Young Adult Literature from the American Library Association. He passed away in 2015 from Alzheimer's Disease.

This map is a good map for those people (like me) who are addicted to Pratchett. Like the others, it helps so much with the visualisation of the places of the book (hubwise, rimwise - it all gets blurred after awhile). However, the map's only negative aspect was that it was a very large map with only a bit of detail here and there - Everything looked a bit spaced out.

HASH(0x9c7799d8) out of 5 stars Discworld fans need this Jan. 14 2010
By Matthew Senne - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Paperback Verified Purchase
I had some ideas of what Pratchett was writing about when he described Lancre, but it's so much nicer to have an aerial view of the castle, Bad Ass, the witches' cottages, and environs. I can place the scenes more easily now, and fill in ground-level views with my imagination. But with this little bit of artistry I feel like I understand the settings better than before with map in hand.

Makes a great piece for your wall.

HASH(0x9c779dd4) out of 5 stars Good overall if you know what you're actualy getting. April 15 2014
By Burton Gamble - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Paperback Verified Purchase
I love discworld, this is a great product. I was really hoping that it came with a much more robust companion book, but oh well, the small one included is still quite fun to thumb through. The map itself is well done, printed on decent paper, and looks quite nice. But it is unfortunately glued to the booklet really well, so it may well be impossible to detach it without damage in the case one wanted to laminate or frame the map itself. Got 4 stars instead of 5 because I can't frame the map like i wanted to.

HASH(0x9c779c30) out of 5 stars A Diskworld accessory Oct. 31 2013
By John Eppstein - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Paperback Verified Purchase
It is what it is - for those who just can't get enough Diskworld. It contains a rather beautiful map of the country (by Paul Kidby) and a thin tourist's pamphlet credited to one "Eric Wheelbrace". My main criticism of the package is that it's perhaps slightly on the pricey side considering the paucity of content; I'd hoped for a bit more. However I doubt that will be an issue for the dedicated Diskworld fan.

Great service from vendor. Product arrived on time and I do so want more Discworld maps. If you want to frame the map, I suggest getting two as the map comes with a guide and both the guide and the map are glued to a cover.
