If there’s one thing the entire Harry Potter fandom can agree on, it’s that you can never ever own too many Harry Potter books. Whether it’s collecting the 20th-anniversary editions of each book as they are released, or saving up to buy every companion book out there, Potterheads like to be in the know of all things magical. If you’ve been wondering whether you’ll get to sink your teeth into some more Potter books this year, we have some good news.
You might have heard of the Harry Potter: Film Vault series. You might even own the first four volumes. The awesome news is that Insight Editions has announced the release of Volumes 5–8 in the collection, and you’re going to want to take the Floo Network to your nearest bookstore and bag them all.
The Film Vault series, written by Jody Revenson, covers everything you could possibly want to know about how the creators of the Harry Potter films brought the magic to life on-screen. A total of 12 volumes will make up the collection. It’s a visual treat, with gorgeous concept art and unit photography straight from the Warner Bros. archive. As if all that magic wasn’t enough, each book also has a unique spine, which forms the Hogwarts crest when you line them up on a bookshelf. Just take our Galleons, please.
