February 7, 2013 Harry Potter: The Complete Filmmaking Journey!
We were thrilled last week to receive our own copy of the Harry Potter Page to Screen (The Complete Filmmaking Journey) collection! It was delivered to our studio in a huge box so there was only one guess as to what it could be. There are only 3,000 copies of the full collection available worldwide, so it is a true collectors gem for devoted Harry Potter fans.
The collection comprises of 8 beautifully crafted volumes, including a scale prop replica of The Monster Book of Monsters and an oversized portfolio with five prints of concept art. The other 7 volumes explore the different aspects of the filmmaking including costumes, creatures, special effects, muggle attire and of course the graphic arts! Each of the books have also been designed to resemble a book from the library shelves at Hogwarts.
A lot of the volumes are cloth bound and some of the covers include blocked elements, with gold and silver foiling, which really makes the collection look exquisite and unique.
Did you know, the book cover designs for each of the volumes were produced based on inspiration from our graphic designs that featured throughout the films.
We were honoured to design the ‘Guide to the Graphic Arts Department’ book for the collection. We took on every element of the design, from the cover design and end paper, to the layout of the content and imagery.
It’s an exciting portfolio of work highlighting almost all the graphic design we created throughout the entire Harry Potter film series. It demonstrates how the designs and styles evolved, spanning both magic and muggle worlds, encapsulating how we brought the Harry Potter world to life through our passion for graphic design!
The full collection is available on Amazon if you want your own complete collection of filmmaking magic!
