The model

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 Observatory
  • The High Energy Magic Building
  • The Clock Tower
  • Modo's Garden Shed
  • The Library
  • The Boathouse

The models were illustrated by illustrator and model maker Alan Batley, from the original Unseen University model by Discworld artist[1] Bernard Pearson.

The book is a 166-page softcover book printed on full 8-1/2" x 11" cardstock. The cut-outs are highly detailed, with many > tabs to cut by X-acto knife prior to assembly; they are printed in color on one side only throughout pages 39–165, and detailed instructions are printed on both sides of pages 9 to 38 (37-38), also printed in color on card stock.

The actual papers used by Transworld Publishers are "natural, recyclable, products made from wood grown in sustainable forests." (from the copyright page).
