I'm happy to buy special editions but this just feels like fan exploitation, especially considering the RRP is £25.00.
I have loved this book since I first read it, a long time ago. Like all Discworld novels, it manages to both turn the world upside down, while also making sense of it, and all the while allowing you to laugh. Gaurds, Guards first introduced us to Vimes, Lady Ramkin, Carrot, Nobby, Colon, et al! Not to mention an indept exploration of the Patrician and his mind! The plot is hilarious, the characters are both comic and tragic. I always suspected Pratchett was guilty of "liteature" and this novel is sited as evidence to that case.
This edition comes replete with beautiful illustrations, that unlike the recent TV series, remain true to the story in tone, style and content. For me, I could look at the drawings all day long, and still notice little touches that are both intelligent and creative.
So, if you like beautiful books then this is a worthy addition to any collection.
really, this is just a money grab, don't waste your time.
