But, if a person unfamiliar with prior incarnations wants to know exactly what is contained (and is willing to accept the word of such a sycophantic fan of Discworld as I might be considered), then I would provide the following extended information:
Core contents are laid out as one week for each double page spread, four days to each side (final day of week being "Octeday", but not counted as a 'day of the month' so as to maintain consistency with our 'mundane' calendar that possesses only 7 days a week) with standard Roundworld event/phase of the moon/eclipse information unobtrusively mixed with humorous Discworld facts and artwork. A 2007 Year Planner can be found within the front cover for at-a-glance use and a 2008 Year Planner within the back cover for planning the year still to come.
Preceding the diary proper, there are 20-odd pages of text and artwork which convey (in typical Pratchettian/Kidbyesque manner) the 'facts' surrounding the past and present operations of the Ankh-Morpork Post Office itself, inclusive of a Personal Details section themed to the selfsame subject, much as prior years' diaries were themed and annotated towards their own assigned Discworld-related subjects.
In other words, as usable an A5-sized hardback diary as any you might find out there, with all the usual bells and whistles and an integrated 'bookmark-tassel'. And then you also have the added benefit of finely crafted humour and art upon the Discworld/Going Postal theme, running throughout.Read more ›
I wasn't disappointed. As with the other Pratchett diaries it is full of wonderful titbits and illustrations. It is a great addition to Going Postal, adding extra details that were probably on Mr Pratchett's note pad when he wrote Going Postal the novel.
It's well worth the time (and money) of any Pratchett fan.
All this and a proper diary too.
