Cover Reveal! The Colour of Magic &The Light Fantastic
Ever since we announced the existence of the Discworld Collector’s Library, we’ve been consistently asked two things: 1. Will the books after Jingo be published in this style? and 2.

In any event, let’s not spend another post dwelling on numbers and travelling off on completely irrelevant, illogical tangents […]
The Discworld Collectors Library is Here!
I DON’T KNOW ABOUT YOU, BUT I COULD MURDER A CURRY. For a generation of readers, text rendered in all caps has meant one of two things: either someone is shouting on the internet or the Discworld’s favourite personification of an abstract concept is making a characteristically pithy pronouncement.
