At only 24.2 x 28.6 x 2.5 cm, 160 pages and 1.4kg in weight, this book is really the little brother of the more comprehensive mammoth sized "Harry Potter: Page to Screen" by Bob McCabe. In truth, the two books are totally different - "Film Wizardry" attempts to provide a rush of memories and energy from a well assembled scrapbook format, where as "Page To Screen" is more like an encyclopaedia. You can get through "Film Wizardry" in a few hours, but it is so much fun, it can be re-read again and again.
"Film Wizardry" covers the visual elements of the films tremendously well. In brilliant colour images there are costume sketches and designs, story board sequences, memorable scenes created by the concept artists and maps and diagrams illustrating the complex rooms and corridors of Hogwarts School and the mysterious nooks and crannies of Diagon Alley. Most magical of all are the various movie prop replicas which enable you to grasp and hold some of the magical items from the world of Harry Potter. It is best to leave these as a surprise as there is a lot of excitement in discovering them for the first time!
One or two teasers are a copy of Harry's letter from Hogwarts School and a copy of Libatius Borage's "Advanced Potion-Making" - but it is more fun to discover these yourself!
This is a must-have book for any serious Harry Potter enthusiast, and even someone with a casual interest in the J K Rowling books or the Potter movies would find this lots of fun and highly informative.
