The Art of Harry Potter: The definitive art collection of the magical film franchise Reviews

  • Erwin

    JK Rowling painted the world of Harry Potter with her words. In "The Art Of Harry Potter" we get a chance to see that world in pictures created by the artistic team responsible for putting the 'painted' words to the movie screen.

    This is a beautiful oversize book full of illustrations that capture the sets that were used, the characters, the creatures and the unique detail of the props. Because the book consists of 95% pictures vs. words the reader can experience the entire work within two hours.

    This is a beautiful oversize book full of illustrations that capture the sets that were used, the characters, the creatures and the unique detail of the props. Because the book consists of 95% pictures vs. words the reader can experience the entire work within two hours... but just as easily stop along the way and get caught up in the fantasy world created.

    Listen to the chapter titles and you will understand the world you are about to enter:

    The Wizarding World

    Wizards, Witches and Muggles

    Magical Creatures

    Artifacts

    Graphic Art Of The Wizarding World

    This is primarily an adult book but any children in the family will surely enjoy the many colorful and extraordinary illustrations that will bring home the fantasy world of Harry Potter and his friends.

    it is a gorgeous behemoth of a book.. it includes the concept art that went into the making of the Harry Potter movies, even some that didn't make it into the movies and I am so stoked to have them altogether in one fabulous edition.. it is truly magical seeing how J.K.Rowling's words paved their way for the big screen!⚡

    This book is so gorgeous that you’ll be likely to forget all about that lovely cup of tea you just made as you fall completely back into the wizarding world :)

    It is hard to find the words that will do this book justice.

    It is hard to find the words that will do this book justice.

    is beyond anything that I have seen before. In the words of its author, Marc Sumerak,

    The talent and skill it takes to create this world, these characters, these creatures is deserving of countless accolades. The book combines visual and graphic art, sketches and partial stills from the movies in order to share how the various artists were able to bring the Wizarding World of Harry Potter to life. It serves as a masterful way to understand how the pages from J.K. Rowling's books eventually came to life on the big screen. (There are even sketches and artist renderings for characters and/or story lines that did not make it the big screen. Take for example the ghost Peeves. We read about him in

    , but there is no reference to him in the screen adaptation).

    You will not be disappointed with this book.

    This is a massive book - honestly its impressive in almost every aspect - including cutting off circulation to parts of your body while reading it in bed.

    So what we have here is a huge (and did I say heavy) book on the art of the Harry Potter movies, this covers the concept art and production art of all the films. That pretty much sums up the book but boy if that is all you can say about it then you are missing so much.

    So what we have here is a huge (and did I say heavy) book on the art of the Harry Potter movies, this covers the concept art and production art of all the films. That pretty much sums up the book but boy if that is all you can say about it then you are missing so much.

    The books size (and yes weight) means that the heavy gauge paper have huge illustrations of the world that Harry Potter inhabited - so you have images that never before have been seen in hugh high quality spreads.

    Not only that you can see how creates, characters and please all evolved in to the iconic images we so quickly recognise today. Now its doing the book a massive disservice to say every Potter fan should have this book.

    No I think every person who can appreciate a good film, appreciate imagination and creativity will be impressed by this book.

    This is one of those books that if you know someone who has it - you are just dying to borrow it to read although you know from the instant you first handle it you will planning on going out and buying your own copy of it too.

    OMG ICH LIEBE ES! Es ist so wunderschön! Ich liebe eigentlich alles in und an dem Buch. Es macht meine Harry Potter Sammlung komplett <3

    A beautiful guide through the art of the Harry Potter movies. Not much text, but such stunning pictures, drawings and concept art of everything from logos and props to costumes, scenes and even Quidditch fields.

    Me, counting picture books towards my goodreads challenge? You're damn right I am.

    This was an exhaustive collection of art from the Harry Potter films, containing everything from blueprints of Gringotts to copies of Mrs Weasley's homemade jam labels. It was wonderful to see the amount of detail that went into creating the series, and really makes you appreciate the unsung heroes of film - art directors, costume and prop designers deserve a lot more credit! It's also of absolutely excellent quali

It was wonderful to see the amount of detail that went into creating the series, and really makes you appreciate the unsung heroes of film - art directors, costume and prop designers deserve a lot more credit! It's also of absolutely excellent quality; even images that take up the whole page are crisp and full of colour and detail.

    My only critique is that I found the book slightly disjointed at some points and think it could have been organised in a different way.

    Don't hate me for this people! Here's the thing, the artwork is BEAUTIFUL, don't get me wrong, BUT if you've read the movie books, aka artifacts, locations, creatures, characters, etc, where they show you the behind the scene stuff...we've seen the majority of these photos before. Therefore, for the price, it's hard to justify buying this book..again. And the worst part is, they sealed the book so you don't realize this until AFTER you buy it. Granted, the pictures are in a bigger format so you

    Don't hate me for this people! Here's the thing, the artwork is BEAUTIFUL, don't get me wrong, BUT if you've read the movie books, aka artifacts, locations, creatures, characters, etc, where they show you the behind the scene stuff...we've seen the majority of these photos before. Therefore, for the price, it's hard to justify buying this book..again. And the worst part is, they sealed the book so you don't realize this until AFTER you buy it. Granted, the pictures are in a bigger format so you can see some newer details you might have missed before, but, for the price, I expected a lot more. I wanted a lot more newer photos, newer things we hadn't seen, etc. There's very little writing in the book, no chapters with explanations (for example, we see that indeed they had planned on making Hermione's dress Periwinkle Blue! There's even artwork to prove it!) but we don't know why things were changed etc.

    Is the book worth it..eh..maybe. If you haven't read the movie magic/vault books, then by all means, yes this book is worth it. If you want to read the artifact vault, movie locations, etc books, then maybe hold off on this one as all those books are expensive as well, and you will learn a lot more from those books than this one.

    Plus it's a super heavy book (almost 7 pounds!) so it's not very portable!
