For any Harry Potter fan who's childhood has been shaped by the Harry Potter books and films this book is a must buy. For me it already seems as important on my bookshelf as the Harry Potter books themselves.
|Length: 1:15 Mins|
Harry Potter Wizardry is 160-page hardcover and designed like a scrapbook with little goodies -- booklets, stickers, maps, etc - attached to the pages. The cover is also nicely embossed. It's printed by publisher Collins Design.
The book covers all the seven films, including a sneak at at Deathly Hallows Part 2. It's packed with all sorts of interesting things from the Harry Potter movies. There are chapters on characters, the schools, mythical creatures, strange locations and stories about the wizardry world. You can read about all the teachers Harry had, the different villains from each movies, Ministry of Magic or all the strange inventions created by Ron's twin brothers.
There are plenty of photos shot behind the scenes showing the sets, the miniatures and models, actors and there are even some pieces of artwork and sketches.
The commentary provided includes interviews with the actors and staff. They talk about everything from creating sets like the Hogwarts castle to how they film the movie with computer graphics elements. I'm impressed with how much content is included.
This is the book Harry Potter fans have been waiting for. Grab it.
(There are some pictures of the book on my blog. Just visit my Amazon profile for the link.)
For me personally the best bits of the book cover the visual elements of the films, from costume sketches, story boards, scenes created by the concept artists and maps showing the intricate layouts of Hogwarts and Diagon Alley the work is truly stunning. Best of all are the facsimilie replicas which allow you to hold that little bit of Harry Potters world in your hands, I won't give away all of the suprises but there are some incredibly intricate props tucked away within the book which really do bring it all to life.
I would reccomend this book to absolutely anyone with even an incling of an interest in Harry Potter. Having just biefly flicked through it I can already really appreciate the incredible amount of work that went in to the films and I look forward to an evening spent reading it cover to cover!
But if you, like myself, waited until the expanded and finished edition, then this book is absolutely brilliant for any Harry Potter fan and a definite must-buy.
The book itself is a gorgeous addition to any Potter collection, as it's nicely presented and includes great detail and information on the films which is lovely to keep. The detachable extras inside, such as the marauders map & hogwarts letter are equally as lovely to own - I've taken out and framed most of mine, as they look great on display ^.^
Great price, great product and was delivered fast - what more do you want?
don't hesitate in buying this, if you love the Potter series even just a little bit, it's worth it
the book is brilliant for any muggle fan. the book contains everything & anything a harry potter fan could want to know... & more. the interviews, backstage information & little quirks such as copies of harrys letter from hogwarts or a copy of advanced potion making make entertaining little thrills that really make the reader feel involved & right there with all the magic.
could hardly put it down & i would reccommend for any true fan.
5 star rating? you bet, if there was a 6th star i would give it! :)
