Harry Potter: The Artifact Vault is a book by Jody Revenson based on the Harry Potter film series. The book offers a comprehensive look at the many and varied visual elements designed by the graphics department and crafted by the prop making teams to create a rich, varied, and believable visual experience.
Throughout the making of the eight Harry Potter movies, designers and craftspeople were tasked with creating fabulous chocolate-fantasy feasts, flying brooms, enchanted maps, and much more, in addition to numerous magical items necessary in a wizard’s everyday life—for example, newspapers with moving photos, vicious textbooks, and Howlers. Harry Potter: The Artifact Vault chronicles the work of the graphics department in creating vibrant and imaginative labels for potions bottles, brooms, and candy; the creation of Quidditch Quaffles, Bludgers, and Golden Snitches, lovingly crafted by the prop making team; and the stunning inventiveness used by the entire crew to create a rich, bewitched filmic universe.
Accompanying the captivating text are never-before-seen art and design concepts, unit photography, and other filmmaking secrets from the Warner Bros. archive. This striking full-colour compendium includes two exclusive bonus inserts—a booklet showcasing the design of The Tales of Beedle the Bard prop and a Black Family Tapestry poster—as well as many more surprises.
