Book Description Sterling, 2001. Book Condition: New. Brand New, Unread Copy in Perfect Condition. A+ Customer Service! Summary: "I'm one of the very few [writers] who wait anxiously to see what new delights the book cover will bring."--Terry Pratchett. Original artworks of rare distinction--all born from a very special partnership between an author and the painter who faithfully brings his fantastical universe to life in images.When Josh Kirby received the commission to do the cover for Terry Pratchett's first Discworld novel, he had no inkling that this would lead to something much bigger than a one-off assignment. However, since that time, their partnership has expanded beyond the series to include two earlier sci-fi and several children's books, as well as Eric, a fully-illustrated novella. Here, in richly dazzling colors and vividly energetic designs, are the wizards, witches, bizarre creatures, and (of course!) voluptuous maidens that populate this unusual world--a disc of sea and land balanced on the backs of four elephants, which themselves ride on the back of a cosmic turtle that swims through space. Plus: a selection of paintings from their other collaborations. 9 X 12. 64 Color Pages. Bookseller Inventory # ABE_book_new_1855858959
