This unique and beautiful gift of a book celebrates the astonishing art of Jim Kay with 366 magical moments from the Harry Potter novels brought in spellbinding brushstrokes, characterful ink work and intimate pencil sketches.
This is an irresistible gift book for anyone who has ever been captivated by The Boy Who Lived. Each day features a favourite anniversary or meaningful memory from the Harry Potter novels. All around, Jim Kay’s scenic artwork and decorative painter’s marks bring that moment to life in breathtaking detail. His unique interpretation is both captivating and transporting – picture frozen icicles glinting on the snowy towers of Hogwarts, the dancing eyes of Professor Albus Dumbledore, or the infectious hustle and bustle of Diagon Alley. Stunning colour illustrations are joined by previously unseen pencil sketches and preparatory pieces, offering a unique and fascinating insight into the artist’s sketchbook.
Jim Kay’s dazzling depiction of the wizarding world has been enchanting readers since the publication of the groundbreaking Illustrated Edition of Harry Potter and the Philosopher’s Stone. Now both lifelong fans and new readers can explore that world further. The Kate Greenaway Medal winner’s bewitching character studies, sweeping landscapes and beautifully observed pencil details reveal the skill and process of an artist working at the peak of his powers.
