This is my model of the Unseen University Library from Terry Pratchett's Discworld series in celebration of the 40th anniversary of the first Discworld novel, "A Colour of Magic" published in the early 1980's.

The build includes a wizard who is browsing the shelves of books not aware that a tentacle has wriggled it's way from a portal from the dungeon dimension and is reaching towards him, the .303 bookworm which lives in the library feeding on the magical books which can be seen blasting from it's latest meal, a bust of Terry Pratchett and of course, the famous and fan favourite Unseen University Librarian who was turned into an orangutan after a mishap with a magic spell in the second Discworld book "A Light Fantastic".

This diorama would make a great display piece and even the perfect bookend for a fans Discworld collection!

I had originally designed this build for a fan and shared it online with the Brick-Morpork community who encouraged me to submit the design to LEGO Ideas. There is a huge crossover of LEGO and Discworld fans, many of which have joined the Brick-Morpork community across my social media accounts and they are always wishing for a set to be created based on the Discworld theme. This has been a very popular build and one that fans have said they would love as a set.
