The first Harry Potter book was released 24 years ago. Since then, enthusiasm for the magician has continued worldwide unabated. Here are some must-haves for Harry Potter fans.

by Catherine Mahrenholtz

Do you need multiple editions of the same book? A question that Harry Potter fans don’t really ask. The answer is of course: Yes! In that regard, any Potterhead will be delighted when the brand new decorative edition of the first volume is under the Christmas tree.

“Harry Potter and the Philosopher’s Stone: MinaLima Edition (Harry Potter 1)by JK Rowling and MinaLima


The design duo MinaLima developed the graphic universe of the Harry Potter films: the letter inviting Harry to Hogwarts, the hobo card, the packaging of the candies in the honeydukes – all this comes from the hands of the two designers. Now they have designed a thick book edition full of surprises. Diagonal path to unfold, the chessboard as a pop-up, the portrait of the fat lady with moving eyes.
