A Gift for Harry Potter Fans: Limited Edition Books About the Making of the Films
Posted on November 30, 2012 at 8:00 am
For the Harry Potter fan in your life — there’s a new 3000-copy limited edition book series about the making of the films: Harry Potter Page to Screen: The Complete Filmmaking Journey (Collector’s Edition), with eight books, each a replica of one of the Hogwarts textbooks. My favorite is the one based on the Monster Book of Monsters, complete with sharp teeth. All the behind-the-scenes details are here, from the stories of the props and costumes and special effects to the stories of the friendships that developed on the cast and crew over the course of 8 films. Prepare for sticker shock — it lists at a steep $1000, but you can pre-order it on Amazon for just $600. Or, you can get the one-volume version for $75 (currently more than 40% off on Amazon). Both open the doors to Hogwarts castle and the wizarding world of Harry Potter to reveal the complete behind-the-scenes secrets, techniques, and over-the-top artistry that brought J.K. Rowling’s acclaimed novels to cinematic life. Developed in collaboration with the creative team behind the celebrated movie series, this one-volume deluxe, 500-plus page compendium features exclusive stories from the cast and crew, hundreds of never-before-seen photographs and concept illustrations sourced from the closed film sets, and rare memorabilia. As the definitive look at the magic that made cinematic history, Page to Screen is the ultimate collectible, perfect for Muggles everywhere.
