I’m a pretty big Harry Potter fan, though I don’t have too much in the way of collectibles and memorabilia from it, so I was curious to see what would be featured in this book. Of course, the first chapter features on what started it all – the books! The photos of signed copies and all the different versions was really cool to look at. Then it of course moves on to the movie posters. Although I think my favorite chapter was the one on the movie props – Did you know that the Ford Anglia that Harry and Ron “borrowed” is now owned by Rupert Grint’s father? There is a chapter devoted to gorgeous art based on the books and films as well. This was a lot of fun to check out and I don’t think I have anything featured in the book (except the books) but it was still fun to see what some of these items have sold for and what is out there!
I received a free e-copy of this book in order to write this review, I was not otherwise compensated.
