MinaLima Announces New Book: “The Magic of MinaLima”
Today, MinaLima, the design studio behind the graphic props of the Harry Potter and Fantastic Beasts films, is celebrating 20 years in the Wizarding World!
To celebrate 20 years of making magic, MinaLima announced today that it is working on an exciting new book.
The book, titled The Magic of MinaLima, will delve into its journey so far and will be published in 2022.
The Magic of MinaLima charts our experience of creating the graphic universe of the Wizarding World, from films in which you can escape to books you can delve into, from products you can hold to experiences in which you can immerse yourself.
These last two decades have taken Miraphora Mina and Eduardo Lima on a magical journey, which they spoke about in a tweet earlier today.
Today we celebrate 20 years of making magic together! Our journey has been eventful – and our memories are many!
– taking us from a little corner in the [a]rt [d]epartment of the Harry Potter film studios to a flourishing design studio in London and gallery-shops around the world with our name above the doors!
Together with our amazing team, we have produced props, prints and products. We have crafted letters and labels. We have illustrated books, boxes and bottles.
And best of all, we have met thousands of amazing witches and wizards, mermaids and mermen, fairies and friends all over the world; our journey would not be possible without you.
We have lots of plans for the next 20 years…MinaLima will continue making magical memories!
Love from Mira and Eduardo. x
MinaLima has continued to celebrate its milestone throughout the day, showing its social media followers some sneak peeks of its upcoming books. To the delight of Potterheads, one of the never-seen-before illustrations shows Ron being yelled at by Mrs. Weasley in the form of a Howler, from MinaLima’s upcoming edition of Harry Potter and the Chamber of Secrets.
