Bill Sanderson designs stamps for Terry Pratchett’s Discworld

Sam Vimes Stamps Late last year Bill Sanderson had the chance to illustrate a page of stamps for Terry Pratchett’s Discworld Emporium. For those who don’t know Discworld is a series of 40 books written by Pratchett, based on the fictional Discworld – a flat planet sitting on the backs of four elephants which ride through space on the back of a giant tortoise (of course)…

The stamps feature Sam Vimes – the chief of police of Ankh-Morpock, the biggest city on the Discworld. Although Vimes is a much-loved character from the series he had never before been featured on his own stamp. Discworld stamps are fast becoming collector’s items and have been picked up by The British Museum in the past, so we hope the Sam Vimes stamp will prove as popular as the rest.

Bill was honoured to be included in this strange world and the resulting stamp looks great. The Phosphor team were saddened to hear the news of Terry Pratchett’s death last month and wish to send their condolences to Terry’s family and all at the Discworld Emporium.

The stamp will be available to buy in two batches on April 11th from the Discworld Emporium Website - http://bit.ly/BSvimes

Stephen Player

Stephen Player represented by Artist Partners  is living and teaching art and illustration in San Francisco, but he still finds the time to
illustrate for special projects, and has recently produced a new sample image entitled "Death" for a forthcoming Caroc project.

Stephen has always enjoyed painting the macabre, graphic novels, and other fantasy and horror subjects. He is known for his collaboration on many
Terry Pratchett titles : including

"The Illustrated Wee Free Men "
"Colour of Magic  25th Anniversary Edition "
And
"Guards Guards Board Game"

Stephen's work can also be seen as an influence on the set designs on Sky One's film production of "Hogfather" also a Terry Pratchett project.

Terry Pratchett Covers

Now on his fifth cover, Tom Steyer gives the German Terry Pratchett editions some modernisation. Manhatten (Random House) commissioned Tom to illustrate bright, bold and memorable images, Tom says: "The technique I use enables them to apply the illustrations in various ways. For example the back covers and insides and tear-out bookmarks can have different versions i.e. different camera angles or lighting of the same subjects. All elements can be isolated and reorganized to form additional scenes. Furthermore all objects can be animated to promote the books on websites". Tom Steyer is represented by Illustration
