The complete guide to the city of Ankh-Morpork and its wealth of guilds, entertainments, and activities. Released in November 2012, the publishers' blurb runs:

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 just walk along the wrong way.'

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

This is the city celebrated in Terry Pratchett's bestselling Discworld series as you've never seen it before. A stunning map and comprehensive street directory covering each and every district from Unseen University to the Shades, major landmarks like the Patrician's Palace to little-known, er, nooks like Dwarf Bread Museum in Whirligig Alley. See the notorious establishments and famous streets along which so many heroes have walked, in some cases quite hurriedly.

As leading Ankh-Morpork entrepreneur CMOT Dibbler would say, 'A snip at any price - and that's cutting our own throat. Well, close.


And there is an updated and fully revised version of the The Streets of Ankh-Morpork, with directory, included in the package. Lots and lots and lots of previously un-named streets and places of interest, together with places not fully realised at the time of the first Mapp, such as the Lady Sybil Free Hospital.

The mapp contains either a little joke, a graphic typo or the startling revelation that the Discworld has reversed its spin. The compass at the top would indicate that Ankh was on the widdershins side of the river.

Discworld: The Ankh-Morpork Map App

This map was also released as an interactive app for IOS systems that contains some additional material and other game related additions such as achievements. The app was discontinued for IOS 11 and upwards after Apple dropped support for 32 bit games and is no longer available.
