Paul Kidby: Discworld and Beyond

Terry Pratchett’s Discworld novels are brought to life through the brilliant illustrations of Paul Kidby. This exhibition showcases the wonderful book covers and illustrations for Pratchett’s novels, including favourite characters like Rincewind, the Wee Free Men and of course, Death! Paul Kidby perfectly captures Pratchett's imagined world and with Pratchett’s strong connections to Buckinghamshire this exhibition is a must for fans of both author and artist.
