The Graphic Art of Harry Potter

With names that could have been invented by J.K. Rowling, Miraphora Mina and Eduardo Lima are the creative minds that designed every graphic prop for the Harry Potter films. From the Daily Prophet to the Ministerial Decrees, including the most perfect Marauder's Map someone could have imagined.

Apparently, the Coningsby Gallery hosted an exhibition in June which featured many of the Harry Potter film props. If you are as terribly sad as I am because you couldn't visit the exhibition, there's good news! The Telegraph has assembled an awesome gallery with a selection of the designs. And the Creative Review has a little interview with both designers, and features some designs not included in the Telegraph selection.

Mina and Lima have started their own design studio, MinaLima, and have designed book covers, merchandise and props for other films, including The Golden Compass, wich -letting aside other problems- was visually stunning. Their page is worth having a look at. And best of all is that they sell prints!

My favorite print is the Advertisements from The Daily Prophet:
