Sir Terry at launch of Civic Society book
AUTHOR Sir Terry Pratchett signed more than 70 copies of Salisbury Civic Society’s book, Salisbury in Detail, at a special book launch held at Salisbury library.
The author, who lives in the Chalke Valley and is best known for his comic fantasy Discworld novels, also has an interest in architectural detail and has written the foreword to the book. Salisbury in Detail, containing more than 500 colour photographs and text, offers an unusual insight into buildings in the city, both public and private, highlighting obvious details such as doors and windows as well as the more unusual carvings, plaques and sundials.
In his speech, Sir Terry commented that the book was a remarkable mixture of building design and architectural details that contributed to make Salisbury such an attractive place to live and work.
Salisbury mayor Bobbie Chettleburgh was also at the launch and thanked the Civic Society for producing the book and Sir Terry for his interest in Salisbury.
Copies of the book are available are bookshops in the city.
