Make Space on Your Bookshelf: Insight Editions’ “Harry Potter: Film Vault” Collection Is Here

At Book Expo 2019 earlier this year, MuggleNet got to preview the first installment of Insight Editions’ upcoming 12-book collection titled Harry Potter: Film Vault.

Now, the first two books in the series, Harry Potter: Film Vault: Volume 1: Forest, Lake, and Sky Creatures and Harry Potter: Film Vault Volume 2: Diagon Alley, the Hogwarts Express, and the Ministry, are available to purchase, and the release date for the following two volumes in the series is fast approaching.



The Harry Potter: Film Vault series takes readers into the magical world of “filmmaking secrets and visual artistry” seen in the Potter films. The first installment, Harry Potter: Film Vault: Volume 1: Forest, Lake, and Sky Creatures, gives fans a behind-the-scenes look at the development of the magical creatures in the series through concept art and photography from the series productions.



The second volume, Harry Potter: Film Vault: Volume 2: Diagon Alley, the Hogwarts Express, and the Ministry, focuses on locations in the series. Using sketches, paintings, and on-set photography, this volume details the development of the now infamous locations in the wizarding world.



Both Volume 1 and Volume 2 are available to purchase now for a recommended retail price of $16.99. Once fans have added these to their collections, there is not long to wait until the release of the next two books in the series.

Currently available for preorder are Harry Potter: Film Vault: Volume 3: Horcruxes and the Deathly Hallows and Harry Potter: Film Vault: Volume 4: Hogwarts Students. Both titles will be available for purchase on October 8.



These volumes also contain sketches, concept art, and photography to take fans on the behind-the-scenes journey of the movie magic. Additionally, each of the 12 volumes also contains a collectible art print, and when placed on a shelf together, the spines form a Hogwarts crest.



There is currently no news about the release dates of the other eight books in the series, or indeed which parts of the film process they will focus on. Until this is revealed, we will keep our fingers crossed for a behind-the-scenes look at the costumes in the series, as well as a volume all about the Hogwarts professors!

Will you be collecting Insight Editions’ Harry Potter: Film Vault collection? Which parts of the movie-making process would you like to get a behind-the-scenes look at?

I was given a copy of Philosopher's Stone in 2001, and instantly, I was hooked. Since then, my passion for Potter has been equaled only by my passion for fair access to education (and watching motorsport). A spell I wish could exist in the Muggle world is the summoning charm because this Hufflepuff is not a "particularly good finder"!
