The Unseen University Cut-Out Book by Terry Pratchett



The Unseen University sits in the centre of Discworld’s greatest city, Ankh-Morpork. Some would say it is the very heart of the city. Ancient and magical, it is the home to the greatest library in the multiverse and the oldest building on the Discworld, the soaring Tower of Art. Enjoy the challenge of making all seven buildings and seeing the complete Unseen University literally unfold before your eyes. Created in perfect detail by renowned illustrator and modelmaker, Alan Batley, from the original sculpture of the University by Discworld Artist Bernard Pearson.

The Unseen University Cut-Out Book is a cut-out book that allows a reader to construct a replica of Unseen University from Terry Pratchett's Discworld Series. It was published on 1 October 2006, and includes a foreword by Terry Pratchett. The book consists of sheets of card printed with the various faces of the models that the adult reader can cut out and glue to make eight buildings, The Tower of Art at its center: The Tower Of Art. The Great Hall. The High Energy Magic Building.

The book, when it arrived, was everything I expected it to be, with outstanding artwork and instructions  . I bought 2 so we can put one together and keep one on the shelf.

As an avid paper modeler and Pratchett fan, this was a must-buy item for me. The book, when it arrived, was everything I expected it to be, with outstanding artwork and instructions.

Once I got up the nerve to take the book apart and start cutting, my enthusiasm dimmed just a bit.

As I said, the artwork is excellent, and the engineering is solid and perhaps just a but too much in places, but the model would have benefitted from just one more full test build of the finished product: there are fit problems in many areas, with some structural parts being smaller than the spaces they are supposed to fit by as much as a millimeter, and some other parts being too long or too wide by a similar amount to fit where they belong.

Careful test-fitting and trimming is an absolute must in order to build this, but the result is worth the extra effort.

Any serious Pratchett fan should have one of these, whether it ever gets built or not. Any paper modeler who enjoys a challenge and has a lot of room to display this monster when it's finished should also have one, or probably two: one to build and one to keep!

I have been building all types of models for over 50 yrs. and of all the paper models I have constructed this is by far one of my all time favorites. The engineering that went into this model is superb. The construction is pretty straight forward - although I wouldn't recommend this for someone new to card model construction as some parts of it are fairly difficult - and the instructions are well thought out. The quality of the printing is exceptional and makes for a very beautiful model. I highly recommend it for anyone that enjoys model building.

The Unseen University in Ankh-Morpork, is a major player in all Discworld novels. This Cut-out book brings the University to life -- Oook, Oook, The librarian.

What can I say - I am a nerd. I was never that excited as when I got this book. I am preparing to cut those things out, and play with them. Maybe it is a product designed for kids, but mine is never going near any kids - I will play with it myself! Great thing for any Disc World geek.

Great looking book, almost to good looking to cut up. It is printed on A4 size paper and is 3/4 of an inch thick or around 20mm. The artwork is very good, the instructions are very good, and there is a bit of humor to the notes from the collaborators. The parts are not die cut. A highly recommended book for anyone interested in paper modeling.
