A full-colour fold-out map (A1 size) detailing the streets of the Discworld's most important city, Ankh-Morpork. It includes all the landmarks of the novels, including the Unseen University, the Shades and the Mended Drum.
Ankh-Morpork! City of One Thousand Surprises (according to the famous publication by the Guild of Merchants)! All human life is there! Although, if it walks down the wrong alley, often quite briefly!
The city celebrated in the bestselling Discworld series by Terry Pratchett has been meticulously mapped for the first time. It's all here - from Unseen University to the Shades, from major landmarks like the Patrician's Palace to little-known, er, nooks like the Dwarf Bread Museum in Whirligig Alley. See the famous streets along which so many heroes have walked, in some cases quite hurriedly!
As leading Ankh-Morpork entrepreneur C.M.O.T. Dibbler would say: A snip at any price - and that's cutting our own throat. Well, close.

I bought mine because I'm contemplating running a Discworld RPG game and everyone knows y'can't play without Ye Mapps. Thus I was spared the angst shown by some down at the bottom of the review list who feel It Shoulde Notte Have Beene Donne.
I love the fact that the Mapps look like UK tourist maps I've owned, with a sturdy, book-like cover, a gazetteer glued to the inside of the left cover and the map attached awkwardly to the right one so that the weight of the gazetteer fights you if you try and open Ye Mapp outside or one handed. Ten out of ten for verisimilitude.
The mapp itself is (of course) a work of art well worth the cost of ownership, printed in glorious colour on glossy paper. It's huge. Should you be adrift on a raft it should make a very serviceable spinnaker.
The accuracy is a matter of heated debate, but it's not a debate I involve myself with because a) It is a mapp of an imaginary place which stands on it's own merit, 2) Pratchett was consulted by Briggs often during it's production and therefore obviously approved of its production and $) If you think the idea is doctrinally flawed you shouldn't buy it in the first place. If you've already bought it your choices would seem to be to not look at it, to sell it or to gouge out your eyes.
Personally, I enjoy looking at it, and I'm thinking of getting another copy to mount on a backboard so I can hange yt on ye wall.
It would be an excellent prop for people contemplating running the Discworld (HC), as would The Discworld Mapp.
I liked it.
A must for collectors.
