Per The Bookseller, honoring best selling fantasy author Terry Pratchett, the “Terry Pratchett: HisWorld” exhibition at Salisbury Museum and accompanying title Terry Pratchett: HisWorld – A Brief Guide to Discworld compiled by writer Stephen Briggs, with illustrations by Paul Kidby (Clays) raised £20,000 for the Research Institute for the Care of Older People (RICE). The exhibition had over 21,000 visitors.
Rob Wilkins, manager of Sir Terry’s estate, said, “The ‘Terry Pratchett: HisWorld’ exhibition gave readers old and new, an insight into Terry’s creative endeavours, as well as his life away from the keyboard. We are delighted that we could produce a special book to complement the exhibition and support the invaluable work by RICE – one of Terry’s favourite charities.”
