Inside Fantastic Beasts Illustrated & Deluxe editions

November 28, 2017 § 1 Comment

¬†I just had my first proper look at the deluxe edition of Fantastic Beasts, with beautiful design by art director Stephanie Amster and marvellous production by Bloomsbury. My favourite part is the cardboard box, full of surprises….

A full colour printed cloth slipcase

Containing a cloth covered hardback

With a Hebridean Black dragon & the Cuillin mountains?

And a small print of the Phoenix etching inside

And the page I keep forgetting about, The Ukranian Ironbelly gatefold. My other favourite bit!

Both standard and deluxe editions of Fantastic Beasts are available at the workshop, Lomenech Gill & Fils, where we will be doing a special launch event on 9th December.

To accompany the ‘History of Magic’ exhibition currently on at the British Library, Jim and I are talking about our work on the Harry Potter/Fantastic Beasts books. It should be…magic!
