Discworld Colouring Book Competition

Thursday, 18th August , 2016




Terry Pratchett’s Discworld Colouring Book, published today, is a joyous celebration of everyone’s favourite flat earth. Full of black-and-white line drawings adapted by Terry Pratchett’s artist of choice, Paul Kidby, from his own fan-favourite paintings, this volume is perfect for those wanting to add their own shade of Octarine to the Discworld’s much-loved characters.

To celebrate publication, the publishers are offering one lucky reader the chance to win a page from the book, hand-coloured by Paul Kidby himself!

We’ve made a page available on the Gollancz website as a PDF, so no purchase is necessary. Just download the page and colour it in, then post a photo of your coloured page to social media, tagging @Gollancz on Twitter or Instagram, or GollanczPublishing on Facebook, with the hashtag #Octarine, and Paul Kidby will choose his favourite piece. The winner will receive the competition page, hand-coloured by Paul Kidby, as well as a signed copy of Terry Pratchett’s Discworld Colouring Book. Five runners-up will each receive a copy of Terry Pratchett’s Discworld Colouring Book.

And of course you can order your exclusively embossed copy of this stunning colouring book or pre-order the artist’s edition with thicker artist’s board pages, specially bound so as to be detachable for framing or putting on your wall.


The closing date is midnight on 12th September 2016, and the winner will be announced during Gollanczfest on Twitter, Instagram, Facebook and the Gollancz blog. The competition is open to residents of the UK and the Republic of Ireland. Please see the website for Terms and Conditions.
