From US Harry Potter publishers Scholastic, this new edition of Sorcerer’s Stone is adorned with papercraft features and special fold-out pages, artistically recreating the likes of Diagon Alley, and, naturally, Hogwarts School of Witchcraft and Wizardry. You can even immerse yourself in a pop-out Great Hall feast and (almost) join the festivities yourself.

The book has been designed and illustrated by the talented team at MinaLima, helmed by Mira Mina and Eduardo Lima, who have injected their unique style into the Harry Potter and Fantastic Beasts films.

Look out for the new edition of Harry Potter and the Sorcerer’s Stone, coming 20 October 2020, published by Bloomsbury in the UK and Scholastic in the US.

Cover Art | The Adventures of Pinocchio by Carlo Collidi

The enduring children’s tale The Adventures of Pinocchio, retold for a new generation in this spectacular full-color deluxe gift edition, packed with beautiful artwork and seven interactive features created by the award-winning design studio behind the graphics for the Harry Potter film franchise, MinaLima.

Originally published in 1883, The Adventures of Pinocchio is one of the best known and beloved children’s classics. Written by Italian political satirist Carlo Collodi, it is the story of Geppetto, a poor puppeteer who uses an enchanted piece of wood to carve a marionette boy he calls Pinocchio.

The impish Pinocchio does not want to be a puppet; he yearns to become a real boy. Soon, his curiosity, mischievousness, and naivete lead him away from his father’s shop and into a series of perilous encounters with vicious puppet masters, cunning animals, and other magical characters. Along this perilous journey, the magical puppet learns how much turmoil, heart, and hard work it takes to become a “real boy.” With a nose that grows larger with each lie he tells, Pinocchio has become an enduring icon in children’s literature, and now his story is brilliantly reimagined in this stunning gift edition.

The Adventures of Pinocchio includes specially commissioned artwork and exclusive interactive features, including:

  • A Pinocchio puppet with clothing
  • Additional finger puppets
  • A small theatre for a puppet show
  • A court deck with Pinocchio behind sliding bars
  • A fold out shark revealing Pinocchio and Geppetto inside

This wondrous edition will enchant readers of every age an become a treasured keepsake passed down for generations.

Checked out the House of MinaLima this morning.

Situated in soho on greek street lays this concealed gem which each Harry Potter fan should visit. The reason for this exhibition is to show the visual communication props from Harry Potter for the general population to get a more intensive look.

Highly recommend this to all Londoners.

today I explored the soho area; visited Minalima, the home of the illustrators that work on harry potter books and movie props; relaxed in the Nordic Bakery and read for an hour; marvelled for around 4 hours at the Summer Exhibition and Felix Vallotton exhibition at the Royal Academy of Art and am finishing off the day with browsing some university websites in preparation for choosing my year abroad
