I love Kidby's artwork! He does fantastic work, and I enjoyed reading the little character tidbits that Pratchett threw in as well. ( )

Beautiful artwork! It was nice to solidify the vague, murky appearances of the characters from my imagination. Paul Kidby really renders the Discworld universe faithfully in his captivating illustrations.

There's also a fair bit of information in here. Sort of a "who's who" of the Discworld. It's nice to go through and flesh out the backstories of some of the characters.
