5.0 out of 5 stars Better than Butterbeer!, October 19, 2010
This review is from: Harry Potter Film Wizardry (Hardcover)
If you haven't yet been able to make it to Orlando, this beautiful book offers a way to hold the wizarding world of Harry Potter in your hands. And as an extra special bonus there are sections about the final two films, including a preview of my favorite new discovery: Fleur's double phoenix wedding dress. The level of detail in the book is amazing. For example, the Quidditch program contains an advertisement for Pumpkin Juice. You might want to order two copies: one to keep pristine, and other to take out all the special art from its protective sleeves to decorate your room or office. I would love to put some of the Ministry of Magic's Proclamations around the library! Or pretend to do Christmas shopping out of the Weasley's Wizard Wheezes catalogue. Having visited Hogsmeade this summer, I have a new appreciation for the talent and vision of the filmmakers whose work is highlighted here. The text explains how movie magic was accomplished, down to the special salt that stands in for snow in the models , which has diamond shaped crystals and even crunches like the real thing. This is the most exciting Harry Potter work to come out since The Tales of Beadle The Bard. The Stern Librarian (I own the complete works of Gilderoy Lockhart).

Oh dear, that was meant as a bit of hyperbole about my dedication to Harry Potter. I have actually seen those books in one place. In the window at the Hogsmeade bookstore at the Wizarding World of Harry Potter. It is one of my favorite displays there, mainly because it shows Gilderoy's vain, smiling face on every cover. Unfortunately that store is not one that is open and the books aren't for sale!

I see that there is a Marauder's map in it. How big is it? Is it like the one for 35$ or a lot smaller?

In reply to an earlier post on Oct 9, 2012 7:17:49 AM PDT
It's smaller than the one that's sold on it's own but still nice. The items this book comes with is worth the price alone! I too would buy the collected works of Gilderoy Lockhart, I wish they would put out replica books you could display or put on the bookshelf, I'd buy em all!
