The Emporium has been having a wash and brush up and now have an extra plaque to polish* . . . :D :lol:

The Discworld Emporium's new blue plaque! We hope it would have tickled the great man as much as his quote from Equal Rites tickles us!

Comment from the Book of Face on aforementioned plaque:
Helen Hammond
I'm a gynaecologist and my husband really wants to get me this for my birthday! Will there ever be an equivalent for sale to the public?

OK, who's been playing silly buggers with the Emporium's website?

I like the new twinkly star background, but most of the links and jpegs seem to have disappeared into L-space and aren't loading the relevant pages/images. Has the website been invaded by Feegles? :wink:

They are undergoing a refurbishment. Reb has taken the broom to the dust bunnies and may have swept a few images out with them.
Ian has assured me that the new website will automatically order the items you need before you know you need them; at a very preferential rate.

For those not on the Book of Face:

33 YEARS AGO, THE DISCWORLD WAS BORN.
On the 24th of November 1983, The Colour of Magic was published in the UK.
A journey began and the face of literature was changed forever.
33 years later and still The Turtle Moves.
