Insight Editions Announces Two Special Edition Harry Potter Film Tie-In Titles
A striking and comprehensive exploration of the Wizarding World's most important and mystical tool, HARRY Potter: The Wand Collection: Collector's Edition builds upon 2017's IBPA Ben Franklin Award-winning original. With never-before-seen art and content from the real-life wandmakers behind the HARRY Potter films, as well as a trove of collectible items, this is the set that all fans of the Wizarding World have been waiting for.
Included in this box set are:
The Art of Wand Work, an all-new, 48-page book featuring rare and never-before-seen images from the making of the HARRY Potter films, including wand blueprints, dramatic storyboards for wand battles, concept art of wand duels, and exploratory wand designs.
A scale model of the Elder Wand, as seen wielded by Professor Dumbledore and Lord Voldemort in the HARRY Potter films.
Harry Potter: The Wand Collection, featuring detailed profiles of over 50 characters and their wands.
A stunning new illustrated poster detailing wand movements and technique.
A deluxe cloth-bound keepsake box, stamped with gold foil.
Praised upon release by Bustle, Entertainment Weekly, and more, HARRY Potter: The Wand Collection tells the story of the wands of the HARRY Potter films, from Hermione Granger's elegant, vine-wrapped wand to the bone-inlaid wands of the Death Eaters. Each wand was designed and crafted by the filmmakers to reflect its owner's identity. The Wand Collection is a visual guide to these magical wands, their makers, and the characters who mastered them.
Profiles of each wand feature stunning new photography of the original props, wand statistics, insights from cast and crew members, and other filmmaking SECRETS from the Warner Bros. archive.
Also included in the Collector's Edition is a new 48-page book featuring rare and never-before-seen images from the making of the HARRY Potter films. Inside are exclusive wand blueprints from the prop makers' studio, dramatic storyboards for the wand battle between Professor Dumbledore and Lord Voldemort in HARRY Potter and the Order of the Phoenix, jaw-dropping concept art of wand duels, and exploratory designs for wands-some of which never made it to film.
The Collector's Edition is available on November 20, 2018.
A signed and numbered limited edition of Matthew Reinhart's 3D masterpiece HARRY Potter: A Pop-Up Guide to Hogwarts, featuring six exclusive, never-before-seen pop-ups.
Harry Potter: A Pop-Up Guide to Hogwarts is an exhilarating, interactive guide to the iconic Hogwarts School of Witchcraft and Wizardry, as seen in the HARRY Potter films. This book features spectacular pop-up re-creations of key locations inside and outside of Hogwarts, and it opens flat to form a pop-up map of the castle and its grounds-including the Quidditch pitch, the FORBIDDEN Forest, and beyond. Among the main pop-up structures, numerous mini-pops bring to life elements from HARRY Potter-such as the Marauder's Map and the enchanted Flying Ford Anglia-while hidden pull tabs and windows offer glimpses inside Hogwarts castle during iconic scenes from the films. This signed and numbered limited edition is packaged in a cloth slipcase and features six pop-ups not included in THE TRADE edition, including a Platform Nine and Three-Quarters pop signed by the paper engineer.
