MovingPictures

The tenth novel in the Discworld Series

UK hbk: Victor Gollancz, 18,200 copies on 1 November 1990 (0-575-04763-1) reprinted three times, twice in November, once in December.
(At some time, a further printing of the jacket was ordered, a new design being wanted by someone in the publisher’s art department, so the jacket was modified. The title on the front cover was changed from blue/red to black/red, the author’s name was printed in a sans serif type in black on front cover and spine, perhaps to match the title, the spine background colour was changed from orange to pink, and the publisher’s ‘Gollancz SF’ logo moved from the head to the tail of the spine (a position it kept on all future titles, though changed to a simple VG design in black, still used today). As the jackets on the third reprint were the original version, perhaps after that reprint had sold out it was found that there were sufficient jacketless copies of the book to justify the printing of a quantity to cover them, and they were used to rejacket copies of all four printings.)
