Josh Kirbys exuberant cover paintings for Terry Pratchetts bestselling Discworld series have spawned dozens of imitators, but no one has yet matched his irrepressible and chaotic humor.

As this definitive collection of Kirbys art--including many formerly unpublished works--proves, his vision has many facets. They go from the wildest fantasies to the hardest sci-fi- some images evoke a macabre realm of horror, others portray chilling futuristic landscapes, but all are wondrous. An analysis of Kirbys career and techniques will increase your appreciation of each picture: the Discworld delights, bursting with detail and action- the ghoulish depictions of things that go bump in the night- and the representations of the science fiction worlds inspired by Ray Bradbury and Robert Silverberg. Plus: enjoy a comic compendium of interpretations from the pens of authors such as Tom Holt. A visual feast not to be missed, with an informative text by multiple Hugo Award-winner David Langford. 112 pages (all in color), 8 1/4 x 11 3/4.
