How fans of the late Discworld author celebrated a hero of literature, using an inspiring mix of graffiti, secret code, pub signs and tattoos

Terry Pratchett’s family motto was Noli Timere Messorum – don’t fear the reaper – and the tributes that have flooded in since his death in March aged 66 have been joyous rather than sad.

Pratchett published 70 books for adults and children, including 40 books in his much-loved Discworld series. A 41st, The Shepherd’s Crown, will be published on September 10.

Here are some of the most enjoyable, and moving, ways that his fans and admirers have honoured a great writer.

Actually, it’s rather unfair to call this graffiti. These beautiful murals are about as far away as you can get from hastily scrawled tags on a railway siding.

In the East End of London, Dr Zadok and Jim Vision created a long, detailed painting that featured Pratchett front and centre of many of his Discworld creations. You can find it on Code Street, where Brick Lane meets Sclater Street.
