First Look at the ‘Catalogue of Artefacts’ in Harry Potter: Wizards Collection

When the announcement for the Harry Potter: Wizards Collection came out, we told you that we would keep you posted with the latest news. Here, courtesy of, is a first look at some new information from the Collection. Warner Bros. has released three pages from the Catalogue of Artefacts and here is what they said about the book:

This 48-page rigid book was created by MinaLima Design: Eduardo Lima, Miraphora Mina and Lauren Wakefield, former graphic designers on the Harry Potter films. Filled with their favorite props from the films designed in “shadow boxes,” this stunning catalogue can only be found in the Wizard’s Collection.

One of the above mentioned designers, Lauren Wakefield, had this to say in a recent interview about her work with the Collection:

These props have an unusual history in that they were all designed, crafted and archived within one studio setting, by in-house designers and craftspeople. We wanted the catalogue to bring together this unique family of artefacts, in a logical but creative way, and to capture the magic they brought to the films. Shadow boxes were a charming way to pay homage to the working environment of the film studios and to suggest how, for each set, there would usually be a collection of props standing by, ready for action.
