Orbit presents this deluxe, limited-edition printing of The Culture: The Drawings, available worldwide exclusively from the Orbit UK store.

This extraordinary collection celebrates the dazzling worldbuilding of Iain M. Banks, one of the most important and influential writers in modern science fiction. Faithfully reproduced from sketchbooks kept in the 1970s and 80s, these annotated original illustrations depict the ships, habitats, geography, weapons and language of Banks’ Culture series of novels in incredible detail.

This luxurious collector’s edition will be bound in a beautiful cloth and foil cover in a sumptuous presentation box with exclusive endpapers and a print of one of Iain’s drawings ready for framing. Many more exciting Culture-inspired features will be announced soon.

There will only be 750 individually-numbered copies of this deluxe collector’s edition.
