Harry Pot­ter: Mag­i­cal Places From The Films

Just when you thought that ev­ery sin­gle book with the words ‘Harry Pot­ter’ on it had been pub­lished…

Au­thor Jody Reven­son he long decade of Harry Pot­ter film pro­duc­tion in­spired a whole raft of books ex­plor­ing the trans­la­tion of JK Rowl­ing’s prose into cin­e­matic smashes, and even years af­ter the en­tire nar­ra­tive wrapped, Ti­tan has more to of­fer us – this be­ing the new fol­low-up to its re­cent Crea­tures of Pot­ter re­lease.

Those who will buy any pack­age of pages with the Harry Pot­ter name on will heed no opin­ion on the qual­ity of this new ex­plo­ration of the se­ries’

Avail­able Now lo­ca­tions ei­ther way, but non­com­pletists would not be wast­ing their money, ei­ther. Ad­mit­tedly, the one most goose-pim­ple-in­duc­ing re­pro­duc­tion in the en­tire book is JK Rowl­ing’s own orig­i­nal biro sketch of the Hog­warts grounds, fol­lowed as gospel by the de­sign­ers from that day for­ward. How­ever, with nearly 20 hours of screen magic to an­a­lyse, there’s very lit­tle dead space in the 200 pages.

Spoil­ers, of course, abound as the stand-out lo­ca­tions from all eight films are de­tailed, from exquisitely painted con­cept to dig­i­tal magic. The only lessthan-mag­i­cal note is the odd in­clu­sion of an en­ve­lope con­tain­ing a sketch of Di­agon Al­ley and ex­tra pam­phlets, where a glossy Hog­warts map would have been the per­fect fi­nal touch.
