This is a really short post today. I just wanted to tell you about the MinaLima classics. If you haven’t already worked it out I am a little obsessed with MinaLima. That is Miraphora Mina and Eduardo Lima who did the graphic design work on Harry Potter. They also worked on a bunch of other movies including The Fault In Our Stars, The Imitation Game, Sweeney Todd and The Golden Compass.
The latest thing they have created are these gorgeous illustrated classics and I’m more than a tiny bit in love with them. Both books feature colourful illustrations and interactive removable features. Basically they are a work of art in themselves. They retail at £20 which is a little expensive (though you can get them in Costco for £13) but I really don’t care, I want them to do all of the classics in this style and I will buy every single one of them.
I also recently visited The House of MinaLima in London, which is an exhibition and shop featuring some of the graphic design pieces done by MinaLima for Harry Potter. The shop can be found just behind the Palace theatre and is a must visit if you’re down seeing Cursed Child.
