The Discworld is the fictional setting of Terry Pratchett’s most iconic series. All the Discworld novels take place on a flat, circular world which sits on the back of four elephants, which stand on the back of a giant star turtle. Although this world may look and sound completely different to our own, the Discworld novels explore a multitude of very human issues.

As a diehard Discworld fan I'm not too sure why it's taken me so long to buy this map but I'm so glad I have it now and I can't wait to start using it to plot the character's journeys on my next reread of the series!

This is exactly like those tourist maps you can buy for any other holiday destination, the ones that have a booklet of information on one side and then a huge fold out map on the other that you can lay out across your dining table and plot your holiday destinations. Unfortunately we can't visit the Discworld in real life but this definitely helps bring the spirit of the place to life. As much as I have been able to picture characters and parts of the Discworld very vividly thanks to Terry Pratchett's wonderful writing I love having this physical map to look at.

The little booklet included is quite small so it won't take you more than 20 minutes to read in it's entirety but it has a nice introduction to the map creating project from both Terry Pratchett and the illustrator Stephen Briggs. It also includes a brief history of the Discworld's most prominent explorers which is written with Terry's trademark wit and humour.

This book may not be for the casual Discworld fan but it's a lovely addition to any superfan's collection.

This is really for the specially interested (Like myself). This is the old edition of the discworld map, if you want the new and udated one, look for the discworld atlas. It might be also intersting for people who are into learning about the process of making a fictional map because the notes by briggs are excellent! It might be also intersting for people who are into learning about the process of making a fictional map because the notes by Briggs are excellent, also the introduction by pratchett is fun.

This is a terrific help to Discworld travelers. At last, I know exactly how far it is from Lancre to Ankh-Morpork (as the broom flies), where Uberwald is in relation to Borogravia, and why it takes so long to cross the Great Nef. The Mapp folds out to approximately 28" x 28" & is printed on heavy, glossy stock that should last long enough for the use of even the History Monks. Includes a history of the voyages of Discworld explorers, many of whom appear to have been victims of Mapquest.

Despite saying that he'd never map out Discworld, Terry Pratchett did, and it was worth the wait. A great way to put the many stories into context.

A fun side line for the Disc World enthusiasts. More detail would be nice.

The Good:
It's got some pretty funny stuff in it about the various explorers of the Discworld, and comments from Pratchett and Briggs about the making of the map.

The Bad:
It's not really a book, and there's not much to it.

The Verdict:
Great fun, though, and perfect for what it is. I'm thinking it'll be interesting to refer to next time I read a Discworld book.

Nice companion to the Discworld book series.
I love discworld, and this is a great product, but don't be fooled by the details which state that this product has 369 pages. It only has about 32, and that's including the cover, title, and copyright pages, and the table of contents. I have no idea where they got 369 from. I was really hoping that it came with a much more robust companion book. The map itself is pretty well done, printed on decent paper, and looks quite nice. But it is unfortunately glued to the booklet really well, so it may well be impossible to detach it without damage in the case one wanted to laminate or frame the map itself, which is what I wanted to do. I would only give it 3 stars since the details were misleading and I can't frame the map like i wanted to, but I love discworld so much that it still gets 4 stars instead of 3.
