The majority of our books come exclusively with a signature plate, embossed directly into the page and are further enhanced with a metallic embossed wafer.

The design may vary, we have a Death and an A’tuin signature plate as well as the Terry shown. The wafers may also differ depending on availability. The honey bee in memory of Terry, is our most popular. You will not find embossed books anywhere else and the designs were overseen and approved by Terry himself.

The Ultimate Discworld Companion

Exclusively embossed with Terry's signature and sealed with his coat of arms

£25.00

Format: Hardback

The absolute, comprehensive, from Tiffany Aching to Jack Zweiblumen guide to all things Discworld, fully illustrated by Paul Kidby.



The Discworld, as everyone knows, is a flat world balanced on the back of four elephants which, in turn, stand on the shell of the giant star turtle, the Great A’Tuin, as it slowly swims through space.

It is also the global publishing phenomenon with sales of over 100 million books worldwide (but who’s counting?). There’s an awful lot of Discworld to keep track of. But fear not! Help is at hand. For the very first time, everything (and we mean everything) you could possibly want to know has been crammed into one place.

If you need a handy guide to locales from Ankh-Morpork to Zemphis . . .

If you can’t tell your Achmed the Mads from your Jack Zweiblumens . . .

If your life depends on distinguishing between the Agatean Empire and the Zoons . . .

Look no further. Compiled and perfected by Stephen Briggs, this is your ultimate guide to Sir Terry Pratchett’s beloved fantasy world.

The Ankh-Morpork Archives: Volume One

Exclusively embossed with Terry's signature and sealed with his coat of arms

£25.00

Format: Hardback

Think you know Ankh-Morpork? Think again.

In this top-secret guide, travellers will receive a first-hand experience of the real city. If you’ve ever wondered where Unseen University students wet their whistles (while managing to avoid their teachers doing the same), or just what the Assassins’ Guild constitutes a proper means of inhumation – there are standards to be upheld, after all – then this is the book for you.

That’s right, have yourselves a peek into the inner workings of city’s societies. Cut the chaff, glimpse behind the curtain, see how the sausage gets made . . . err, you get the idea.

Just don’t let the Thieves’ Guild catch you with this book. They won’t appreciate their methods being flogged behind their back. Flogging’s their job.

Completely revamped and redesigned, this full-colour book contains material from Discworld Diaries across the decades.

The Definitive Good Omens – Celestial Edition

Exclusively embossed with Terry's signature and sealed with his coat of arms

Format: Boxed Hardback

Size: 305 X 230mm

Release date: To be confirmed

Pre-order only

LIMITED TO 24 COPIES

There is a hint of Armageddon in the air. According to the Nice and Accurate Prophecies of Agnes Nutter, Witch (recorded, thankfully, in 1655, before she blew up her entire village and all its inhabitants, who had gathered to watch her burn), the world will end on a Saturday. Next Saturday, in fact. So the Armies of Good and Evil are massing, the four Bikers of the Apocalypse are revving up their mighty hogs and hitting the road, and the world’s last two remaining witchfinders are getting ready to Fight the Good Fight. Atlantis is rising. Frogs are falling. Tempers are flaring, and everything appears to be going to Divine Plan.

Except that a somewhat fussy angel and a fast-living demon are not particularly looking forward to the coming Rapture. They’ve lived amongst Humanity for millennia, and have grown rather fond of the lifestyle. So if Crowley and Aziraphale are going to stop it from happening, they’ve got to find and kill the AntiChrist (which is a shame, really, as he’s a nice kid). There’s just one glitch: someone seems to have misplaced him.

This edition features a new revised text, approved by Neil Gaiman and the Pratchett Estate, which clears up many typos and errors from previous editions. Leather-bound hardback in an artisan presentation box, with gold foil page edges, 17 colour illustrations with additional pencil illustrations. Each copy individually hand-printed and bound. Named tipped-in sheets, each corresponding to a letter of the Greek alphabet, signed by Neil Gaiman & Paul Kidby. Separate folio of Good Omens ephemera.

The Compleat Ankh-Morpork City Guide

Exclusively embossed with Terry's signature and sealed with his coat of arms

£28.00

Greetings, adventurer! We lay before you this most comprehensive gazetteer encompassing all the streets of Ankh-Morpork, as well as information on its principal businesses, hotels, taverns, inns, and places of entertainment and refreshment, enhanced by the all-new and compleat map of our great city state.

Our city has grown well beyond its ancient walls, but the remit of this commission from the honourable Guild of Merchants was to ‘map the city’, the pulsing organ of commerce and culture, the heart as opposed to the body, and this we have done. In spades.

We ask that when you pore over this glorious work you spare some thought for the humble cartographers and surveyors who made journeys into the darker corners of our metropolis – no less dangerous than the wilds of Skund or Bhangbhangduc. To some the only memorial is the map you now possess. Others, in their quest for knowledge, paid the highest price that scholarship demands, which is to say, a day off in lieu.

And so we dedicate this map and these accompanying words to the officers, councilors and members of the Merchants’ Guild and to all who will find in its pages paths yet to tread and places yet to explore within the magnificentbwonder that is the city of Ankh-Morpork.

The Discworld Atlas

Exclusively embossed with Terry's signature and sealed with his coat of arms

£25.00

In this noble endeavour, drawing upon the hard won knowledge of many great and, inevitably, late explorers, one may locate on a detailed plan of our world such fabled realms as the Condiment Isles, trace the course of the River Kneck as it deposits silt and border disputes in equal abundance on the lands either side, and contemplate the vast deserts of Klatch and Howondaland – a salutary lesson in the perils of allowing one’s goats to graze unchecked.

The Discworld Graphic Novels

Exclusively embossed with Terry's signature and sealed with his coat of arms

£20.00

Imagine a flat world, sitting on the backs of four elephants, who hurtle through space balanced on a giant turtle. The Discworld is a place (and a time) parallel to our own – but also very different. That is the setting for Terry Pratchett’s phenomenally successful Discworld series, which now celebrates its 25th anniversary.

The Discworld Graphic Novels presents the very first two volumes of this much-loved series in graphic novel form. First published fifteen years ago, these fully illustrated versions are now issued for the first time in hardback. Introduced here are the bizarre misadventures of Twoflower, the Discworld’s first ever tourist, and possibly – portentously – its last, and his guide Rincewind, the spectacularly inept wizard.Not to mention the Luggage, which has a mind of its own.

The World of Poo

Exclusively embossed with Terry's signature and sealed with his coat of arms

£15.00

From Snuff: ‘Vimes’ prompt arrival got a nod of approval from Sybil, who gingerly handed him a new book to read to Young Sam. Vimes looked at the cover. The title was The World of Poo. When his wife was out of eyeshot he carefully leafed through it. Well, okay, you had to accept that the world had moved on and these days fairy stories were probably not going to be about twinkly little things with wings. As he turned page after page, it dawned on him that whoever had written this book, they certainly knew what would make kids like Young Sam laugh until they were nearly sick.

The bit about sailing down the river almost made him smile. But interspersed with the scatology was actually quite interesting stuff about septic tanks and dunnakin divers and gongfermors and how dog muck helped make the very best leather, and other things that you never thought you would need to know, but once heard somehow lodged in your mind.’

But his father wonders why it is full of moo-cows and baa-lambs when Young Sam will only ever see them cooked on a plate. He can think of a more useful book for a boy who lives in a city.
