containing Mort, Reaper Man and Soul Music (0-575-06584-2) with a first printing of 22,000 copies. The advance publicity jackets used as a colour illustration Josh Kirby’s 1974 painting ‘The Grim Reaper’, which showed a view of Death that was ‘everything the Death of the Discworld manifestly is not’ (to quote the author). The published edition used a detail of ‘Death in His Study’ from Eric.
