Lyra's Oxford: Illustrated Edition (Hardback)Philip Pullman (author)
Pullman’s magnificent His Dark Materials novella gets a stunning full-colour gift edition boasting breathtaking illustrations from Chris Wormell that bring the story to vibrant and dramatic life.
A full-colour beautiful gift edition of this magical story featuring Lyra and Pan, set in the world of Philip Pullman's ground-breaking His Dark Materials and The Book of Dust. Illustrated for the first time by Chris Wormell.
Two years after the events of His Dark Materials, Lyra and her daemon Pantalaimon sit high on the roof of Jordan College, gazing down on the streets of Oxford. But their peace is shattered by a flock of enraged starlings, who seem intent on knocking another bird out of the sky - a bird that Lyra and Pan quickly realise is a witch's daemon. The daemon carries worrying tidings of a terrible sickness spreading in the north, and claims that only Lyra can help him - but is he really friend, or foe?
Illustrated throughout for the first time by Chris Wormell, this is the perfect gift for Pullman fans old and new.
