Take a look at these stunning prints and enter to win some for your home!
Occasionally, there are times when watching a film that I think, “I would love to frame this moment and put it on the wall.” Harry Potter and the Prisoner of Azkaban has many such moments for me – I consider the film the pinnacle of the wizarding world aesthetic. Its contrasting light and shadows, beautiful coloring, and gorgeous cinematography serve a delightful visual experience with several shots that I would love to frame on the wall. If you’ve ever felt the same, then you want one of the framed Prisoner of Azkaban stills from Classic Stills!
There are several gorgeous and iconic options, but after agonizing among a few of them, I went with The Hogwarts Express Stops. This still from the journey north from Platform 9 3/4 prominently features the beautiful aqueduct in moody, shadowed lighting. The colors are deep and rich as they mingle with the grey lighting and smoke from the train. It’s a magnificent shot that is not only Harry Potter–themed but also neutral enough to be a striking addition to any household decor and aesthetic.
The framed still came delivered in protective packaging that ensured that it arrived completely intact and ready to be displayed. The frame is a sturdy, plain black that will make a striking silhouette on a wall without taking away from the beauty of the print itself, and it is ready to hang. The matting of the frame seems a bit excessive for the size of the print and leaves a lot of white space surrounding the print itself. The entire piece measures 16×20 inches, big enough to be a featured piece of art but not unwieldy. It is also available in an 11×14 print. Each print comes numbered (mine was 26/30) and with a certificate of authenticity, including that critical information for serious collectors.
The beauty of this still made me want to put it on my wall immediately after opening the box – I started planning a gallery wall around it as soon as it was in my hands! I own a few other Harry Potter–themed art prints, and I can’t wait to see how they look with this still from my favorite of the films. Anyone with an interest in the artistry of the films and art as decor at all will not want to pass up these prints. There are many more available for all your favorite moments from the film and for any decorative taste. You won’t want to miss this rare and beautiful piece to add to your Harry Potter collection!
