Blimey, Jason! Even Sir Terry might find that a challenge to his own collection! :shock:

My DW books fill one bookshelf, two deep. I've only got about 2 physical audiobooks. To show the rest would need a photo of my iTunes/Audible/Isis collection! :)

Then there are a few memorarararabilia from the various DW Cons, one of my favourites being a Gala Dinner name card holder in the shape of Errol.

Oh and I've also got a collection of DW jigsaws, all the DVDs and some cut-out Feegles painted by Jon Lemerond. ;) . :D
If all is not lost, then where is it?

OK, like Jason these have been posted before but we have a lot of newbies and of course this was before the Harper Coillins crew joined us :) There are still items I haven't photographed but this is probably about 90% of it excluding the books

If you play the slideshows and move your cursor when it starts you will see in the top right hand corner an option to show info. Click on that and you will get the name of the picture at the very least and sometimes (when I could be bothered) more details.

Nice pictures guys! I do have a large collection of the DW stamps, but they're all in albums. Not that easy to photograph.

Going to have another go at this.
Shot the DWorld bookcase in two because the converted cloakroom was not long enough to get it all in one. :mrgreen:
A few other bit and pieces I have not unpacked or shown.

Holy smoke, all that stuff is amazing! I feel ashamed, my DW merchandise is very poor in comparison. I have the books, hard & paperback though some of my paperbacks are looking a little foxed as I've had them for 15+ years and they've been passed around & read many, many times. I have one stamp, calendars and the pewter Death & Granny figurines. I also have the UU cutout book that I'm not game to cut out.

That UU looks amazing. And Johnson's organ! What are those brown & gold hardbacks Dug?

Although the big question is, Was the beer any good?

Thanks Sister Jennifer, don't feel ashamed I'm not called the Mad Collector for nothing. ;) :roll:

I can answer your questions, the brown hardbacks are some of the Unseen University Library editions of the books. They were done by Book Club Associates and for some reason have become very expensive although normally BCA editions are cheap. The beer was also very good I've drunk a quite a lot of it in the past :D , although for some reason I seem to have ended up with only one empty bottle, I suspect some overenthusiastic recycling occured :roll:

I've come back and looked at this stuff a couple of times today. It's all so good. If you ever need someone to come in on, say, a bi-weekly basis and clean for you, just run it by this board. I'll definitely be game for the challenge ;).

I'm glad the beer was good. I have some Monty Python souvenir beer that tasted dreadful, the lousy sods.

Yes Bouncy, you're are quite correct.

Btw, do you know the 'Bouncy Castle' song from The Mighty Boosh?

I'll sing it to you;

Bouncy bouncy, ooh such a good time.
Bouncy bouncy, shoes all in a line.
Bouncy bouncy everybody somersault, somersault, summertime, everybody sing along.
Bouncy bouncy, ooh such a good time.
Bouncy bouncy, white socks slipping down.
Bouncy bouncy, stilhettos are a NO, NO,
Bouncy bouncy ooh,
bouncy bouncy ooh,
everytime I bounce I feel I touch the skyyyyyyyyyyyyy!

Bouncy, you're the business.

I have some spare stamps from when I was collecting. If anyone would like a few just drop me a note.
