Friday 56 & Book Beginnings: Harry Potter Film Wizardry

Harry Potter Film Wizardry by Brian Silbey

- For Book Beginnings, p. 6

- For Friday 56, p. 56

Synopsis: 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. Written and designed in collaboration with the cast and crew that brought J.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an enchanting interactive experience, transporting readers to the wizarding world by sharing filmmaking secrets, unpublished photography and artwork, and exclusive stories from the stars. 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.

If the Harry Potter bug has bitten you, you'll want to have this book! It'll keep you and your kids occupied for hours! I think I'll need to do a book tour of this one soon! Happy Friday!

  1. I enjoyed the Harry Potter books (and movies) but I'm not sure I'm fascinated enough to read this book! Still, I can see how serious Potter fans would love it.

    1. it is definitely one of the coolest books we own, freda! if you get a chance to look through it at the library, there are letters in envelopes, the marauder's map and lots of fold out thingies -- it's such a fun book!
