Gollancz to publish Discworld colouring book

Gollancz has acquired World Rights to publish a Discworld colouring book of line drawings by Paul Kidby, Sir Terry Pratchett’s artist of choice.

If Terry Pratchett’s pen gave his characters life, Paul Kidby’s brush allowed them to live it. He provided the illustrations for The Last Hero, which sold over 300,000 copies, and has designed the covers for the Discworld novels since 2002. He is also the author of the definitive portfolio volume The Art Of Discworld.

Containing black-and-white line drawings based on his hugely popular artwork as well as original pieces produced exclusively for this book, Terry Pratchett’s Discworld Colouring Book features iconic Discworld personalities as Granny Weatherwax, Sam Vimes, Rincewind, Tiffany Aching and, of course, DEATH.

Paul Kidby said: ‘It’s been a great pleasure to select some of my favourite artworks and recreate them as line drawings here ready for colouring. Now it’s over to you to embark upon the Discworld colouring-in extravaganza. The future is bright; it’s not orange, it’s Octarine!’

Terry Pratchett’s Discworld Colouring Book will be published by Gollancz on the 11th August priced at £9.99.

We featured Paul Kidby in 2011, when he spoke to us about his acclaimed illustration for the front cover of the Discworld novel Night Watch.
