Happy Wednesday (just a few days until the weekend \o/) to all and welcome to a new Waiting on Wednesday~ This week a new addition in the Discworld series, a series I so so love.
I bumped against this one thanks to the newsletter of discworld.com. Apparently this is a book containing material from the Discworld Dairies. Which are one of the few Discworld books I never cared about as I have no real use of a diary/agenda. But now I can still enjoy all those little bits that were also in those diaries, finally! I can’t wait to see what kind of new things I will learn about Discworld and I am also eager to go back to Discworld again (I should really do another reread of my favourite books), and what kind of fun illustrations are accompanying those bits.
I told Santa about this book, so here is hoping that I will get it for Christmas. crosses fingers
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 exactly what the Assassins’ Guild constitutes a true and proper means of inhumation – there are standards to be upheld, after all – then this is the book for you.
Just don’t let the Thieves’ Guild catch you with this. They won’t appreciate their methods being flogged behind their back. Flogging’s their job, after all.
Completely revamped and redesigned, this full-colour book contains material from Discworld Diaries across the decades.
The book is a compilation of the texts written by Terry Pratchett and Stephen Briggs for the Unseen University, Assassins Guild, Post Office and Thieves Guild diaries. They have been redesigned and formatted into one deluxe digitally re-mastered compendium to showcase the illustrations in large size and the diary element has been removed.
