For 20 years, Miraphora Mina and Eduardo Lima have been delivering stunning artwork for the wizarding world as the graphic design team of MinaLima. In the new book, 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 also 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.
