Transworld is releasing new editions of Terry Pratchett’s bestselling Discworld novels. The Witches series were the first to get the treatment, now it’s the turn of the Wizards.

Introducing the new look for The Colour of Magic, the first book in the series. Interestingly names as one of the BBC’s 100 most inspiring novels.

‘It was octarine, the colour of magic. It was alie and glowing and vibrant and it was the undisputed pigment of the imagination…’

Somewhere between thought and reality exists the Discworld, a magical world not totally unlike our own. Except for the fact that it travels through space on the shoulders of four giant elephants who in turn stand on the shell of an astronomically huge star turtle, of course.

Rincewind is the world’s worst wizard who has just been handed a very important job: to look after the world’s first tourist, upon whose survival rests the peace and prosperity of the land. Unfortunately, their journey across the Disc includes facing robbers, monsters, mercenaries, and Death himself.

And the whole thing’s just a game of the gods that might send them over the edge . . .

If you’ve never read a Discworld novel, what’s the matter with you?’ Guardian

Pratchett uses his other world to hold up a distorting mirror to our own’ The Times

The Colour of Magic is the first book in the Wizard series, but you can read the Discworld novels in any order.
