From the Marauder’s Map to The Quibbler: Graphic art from the Harry Potter films goes on show
From the 422nd Quidditch world cup poster to The Marauder’s Map, one hundred graphic art works from the Harry Potter films have gone on show for the first time for muggles to enjoy.
The original Harry Potter props, which include front pages of magical newspapers The Quibbler and The Daily Prophet, as well as packaging for Bertie Bott's Every Flavour Beans, were designed by the films’ visual graphics team Miraphora Mina and Eduardo Lima.
Miraphora Mina and Eduardo Lima, better known as MinaLima, met on the set of Harry Potter and the Chamber of Secrets in 2002, and went on to create all the props for the remaining six films together.
They decided to bring their prints from the Harry Potter films to the muggle world after fans kept asking what had happened to copies of the The Daily Prophet and the Maurauder’s Map (which can be used to navigate Hogwarts' secret passageways) once the film franchise had finished.
The Graphic Art of the Harry Potter Films at The Coningsby Gallery, 30 Tottenham Street, London, runs until Friday 28 June
