If you are excited about seeing Fantastic Beasts: Crimes of Grindelwald, you will be even more excited to hear that Harper Design is releasing 5 (YES, FIVE!!) adult tie-in books.
Four of the books (The Archive of Magic, Lights, Camera, Magic!, The Art of Fantastic Beasts: The Crimes of Grindelwald, and The Magical Adventure Coloring Book) will be released on November 16th, 2018, in conjunction with the movie while Movie-Making News was released on October 2nd, 2018.
Movie-Making News: If you enjoy reading character backstories on Pottermore, learning about the actor’s take on their character, going behind the scenes to see “how did they do that”, seeing what goes into perfecting the biggest to smallest aspects of the movie, etc., you will thoroughly enjoy Movie-Making News. Thanks to HarperCollins, I recently received my copy and I couldn’t put it down!
The Archive of Magic gives you a close up at Newt Scamander’s world! It includes film making secrets, artworks, removable facsimile reproductions of props, and much much more!
Lights, Camera, Magic! is a beautifully illustrated book that tells you the story behind the film making process – from script to screen.
The Art of Fantastic Beasts: The Crimes of Grindelwald is filled with beautiful paintings, concept sketches, and insights from the artists themselves, as it takes you through the design process of the movie.
The Magical Adventure Coloring Book is a beautiful (and perhaps, challenging) coloring book that includes a giant foldout poster!
I can’t wait to bring you all the full review for each of these books soon!
