About this deal

Brian Sibley is an English author who has written over 100 hours of radio drama and has written and presented hundreds of radio documentaries, features and weekly programmes.

In addition to the stunning art, removable extras, and text from the original book, the new, updated edition of Harry Potter Film Wizardry includes material from Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows Part 2 and a removable Harry Potter Photo Album with photographs and captions from all eight movies. It's easy to get lost in just looking at all the tiny, (almost unseen), but beautifully rendered artistic elements throughtout the book. Now, keep in mind that Heyman went after the film rights before the first book was even published, and the publisher itself (Bloomsbury in London), by no means predicted the book to be a bestseller! Because of all these props, this book can serve as a toy too, one that will enhance imaginative “Harry Potter” play.The 103 third parties who use cookies on this service do so for their purposes of displaying and measuring personalized ads, generating audience insights, and developing and improving products. The graphic artists who designed the films and their contents also designed this book, and they did a fabulous job, with both endeavors. There are all sorts of tear out and removable items: Harry’s invitation to Hogwarts, programs, product catalogue, tickets, cards, the marauder’s map, etc.

Immerse yourself in the world of the spectacular Harry Potter film series, and learn why Yule Ball ice sculptures never melt, where Galleons, Sickles and Knuts are really "minted", how to get a Hippogriff to work with actors, about the inspiration behind Hogwarts castle, and why Dementors move the way they do. There are chapters on characters, the schools, mythical creatures, strange locations and stories about the wizardry world. What is it that’s so fascinating about this book, which looks at first glance to be little more than a gimmicky souvenir book? Besides I love the extras such as the letter, the Quidditch flyer, the Yule Ball invitation and so on.K Rowling's celebrated novels to the silver screen, Harry Potter: Film Wizardry delivers an enchanting interactive experience, transporting readers to the wizarding world by sharing filmmaking secrets, unpublished photography and artwork, and exclusive stories from the stars. Jest w niej zawartych mnóstwo ilustracji i ciekawostek związanych z planem filmowym, do tego sporo elementów typu pop-up. Members from the cast and crew contribute to the sometimes funny, sometimes informative and always fascinating phenom that are the Harry Potter movies. Me ha encantado conocer algunos detalles y datos curiosos sobre las películas y los actores (aunque había leído la gran mayoría en twitter).

Full of removable facsimile reproductions of props and paper ephemera from the movies, this collectible volume offers a privileged look at the Harry Potter films and the talented group of Muggles that has made true movie magic.Brian Sibley is the author of other bestselling behind-the-screen books, like The Lord of the Rings: The Making of the Movie Trilogy and The Land of Narnia. The interior features high-quality, close-up pictures of the props, sets, costumes, and special effects that bring depth to Harry's world. Harry Potter Wizardry is 160-page hardcover and designed like a scrapbook with little goodies — booklets, stickers, maps, even Harry's letter of acceptance to Hogwarts, etc - attached to the pages. And for me as a Harry Potter big fan , and a collector ,My biggest surprise was the AMAZING gifts from the movie, specially My Hogwarts acceptance Letter and The Marauders Map. The book covers all 8 movies, so I got to see a (very) few scenes from Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows Part 2 before the movie comes out.

Harry’s acceptance letter to Hogwarts, a four-page fold out with a map of Diagon Alley (along with a creepy Borgin and Burkes catalog), an Advanced Potion Making text book with adhesive labels for your own home-brewed potions, a Quidditch World Cup Programme, an invitation to the Yule Ball, and among many other such treasures, your very own Marauder’s Map! This revised edition will include additional pages about the final two film installments and also feature a large blueprint of the layout of Hogwarts and a Ministry of Magic poster warning against Death Eaters. The only difference, other than the colour, it that instead of taking up the entire cover Harry has his own circle at the top that is entwined in the same background pattern. Dan remarked on the journey both he and Harry endured in the ten years; Rupert took pride in playing brave Ron Weasley, the "ultimate ginger," in his words; and Emma voiced her respect for her young, annoying, brainy Muggle-born fictional counterpart she thought she had nothing in common with early in the series, but who she embraced with all her heart by the end.The book features interviews with cast members, including: Daniel Radcliffe (Harry Potter), Emma Watson (Hermione Granger), Rupert Grint (Ron Weasley), and Alan Rickman (Severus Snape), as well as exclusive behind-the-scenes stories from the producer on all eight films, David Heyman, director David Yates, and production designer Stuart Craig. This book, this awesome book is highly recommended to anybody who is even slightly interested in Harry Potter. 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.
