In 2015, MinaLima began to design the graphic props for the Fantastic Beasts series.

Eduardo Lima and Miraphora Mina are both graphic artists who have done a great deal of work illustrating for the Harry Potter franchise (books, movies, etc.) over the years. Mina graduated from Central Saint Martins College of Art and Design in 1987, and Lima is a 1997 visual communications graduate from the Pontifical Catholic University of Rio de Janeiro. These two artists started working together in 2001 to help create and establish an illustrated universe for the Harry Potter film series.

After working with each other for some time and becoming such great collaborators, Lima and Mina formed their own design studio, MinaLima, in 2009. Both artists have continued to be involved in the Harry Potter franchise, creating commissions for the Wizarding World of Harry Potter theme park in Orlando, Florida. More recently, in 2015, MinaLima started designing for the Fantastic Beasts franchise.

In The Magic of MinaLima, readers find two decades' worth of insight into the creative process as well as some fun interactive elements. The book covers iconic artifacts from the Harry Potter films such as the Marauder's Map and the Black family tapestry. It allows readers a closer look at smaller details such as the butterbeer labels used in different countries for the Fantastic Beasts films. There are also fun stories from the set of the films, like the time they had to rush to remake the Hogwarts letters because they were too heavy for the owls to carry.
