The Streets of Ankh-Morpork, the first in the "Discworld Mapp" series, was released in 1993, and could be considered one of the first "supplemental" works in the Discworld canon. It consists of a large square fold-out map of the city of Ankh-Morpork and a booklet containing an introduction by Terry Pratchett, and information about how the map itself was devised, written by Stephen Briggs. The remainder of the booklet contains a list of locations on the map shown by grid reference.

This is one of only a handful of Discworld publications to be illustrated by Stephen Player rather than Josh Kirby or Paul Kidby.

In November 2012, an updated and more comprehensive street mapp of the City was released to accompany the book The Compleat Ankh-Morpork. This provides names for a lot of the streets, alleys, locations and institutions that were un-named on the original Mapp.


Being a conciſe and possibly even accurate MAPP of the Great City of the DISCWORLD.

Including Unſeen University and environs!

Also finest assortment of avenues, lanes, squares, and alleys for your walking pleasure.

"There's a saying that all roads lead to Ankh-Morpork. And it's wrong. All roads lead away from Ankh-Morpork, but sometimes people walk along them the wrong way." —from Moving Pictures

Ankh-Morpork! City of One Thousand Surprises (according to the famous publication by the Guild of Merchants)! All human life is there! Although, if it walks down the wrong alley, often quite briefly!

The city celebrated in the bestselling Discworld series by Terry Pratchett has been meticulously mapped for the first time. It's all here – from Unseen University to the the Shades, from major landmarks like the Patrician's Palace to little-known, er, nooks like the Dwarf Bread Museum in Whirligig Alley. See the famous streets along which so many heroes have walked, in some cases quite hurriedly!

As leading Ankh-Morpork entrepreneur C.M.O.T. Dibbler would say: A snip at any price – and that's cutting our own throat. Well, close.
