This is a Map of the City of Ankh Morkpork. If you have't heard of Ankh Morpork you're missing out on one of the best fantasy series ever (Discworld)! The Streets of Ankh Morpork includes a big map, I hung it on my wall, and a small booklet describing the map, and the locations on the map. The map is very detailed, with all major (and many not-so-major) streets identified, important parts of the city labeled, like the Shades, and lots of interesting illistrations around the borders. After reading the Discworld books centering on Ankh-Morpork, I found this map gave new life to the famous city that all roads lead away from.

You'd have to be mad to ask directions from anyone in Ankh-Morpork, so obviously a visitor to the city needs a Mapp showing all the places to avoid at all costs.

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.

This is my favorite Discworld Mapp.

All the important (and many minor) places in Ankh-Morpork are shown, including a more detailed inset of the Unseen University. The artwork is just gorgeous and includes detailed coat of arms of the different guilds.
A very welcome addition is the smaller version of the mapp with coordinates that is included in the booklet.

Terry Pratchett himself has repeatedly stated that used this mapp to help him write the later books, and it's not difficult to see why. If A-M were a real city, this guide would get any tourist where he wants to go (or not).

Something that I never noticed before seeing this map is how little of the Ankh part of the city has been explored in the books. Almost all the labeled places are located on the right hand (eg the Morpork) side of the Ankh river!

This is a must for any avid Discworld fan. It actually increases my enjoyment of the novels based in Ankh-Morpork: all the movements of the Watch actually make sense!

Very cool map. Well designed and implemented (i.e. it has a nice 'look and feel' about it). Nice 'cover' and inside book for information about the map.

Only complaint is that it would be nice if it was made out of studier material not just poster paper type quality.

Regarding the post saying this ruined Ankh-Morpork... if you feel that way, don't buy it/use it. It doesn't mean the product itself is bad in and of itself.

Simply put, this is a guide for those hardcore discworld fans who absolutely need to know things like the distance between the Temple of Offler the Crocodile God and The Assassins Guild.

I liked it.

This "mappe" is very helpful in grounding the Discworld books (in their own reality, of course!). I understand Terry Pratchett resisted the idea of a map for years, believing that Discworld and Ankh-Morpork should live in the imagination. I'm glad he has come around to a willingness to allow a shared, visual representation of the City, for those of us who need it!
