If you were to search through all the editions of Harry Potter, you would find it hard to match the outstanding tribute the MinaLima adds to the literary and cinematic phenomena that is Harry Potter! The combination of a splendid volume with a set of literally out-standing (as in pop up and other art) interspersed throughout the book with its old world feel makes it a prize addition in any personal library. A thing of beauty which is sure to be a joy forever! I wish them well in coming up with the next edition soon. Just can’t wait! And a big thank you for your effort in producing a prized yet reasonably priced edition. Please keep it up!
Got this book today - My son was literally not interested in reading Harry Potter books - especially because they were all text and he is young so I kind of understand. I tried getting the one from the Library and he barely read a few pages and never touched it again. Kids like pictures and something that keeps them engaged. The book (Philosopher's stone) has been cleverly designed to keep interactive elements spread throughout regularly - that and the all colour print was basically enough to to get my son excited. Once he saw a youtube video of what was coming his way - as opposed to a boring all black text (mostly) - he was thrilled. The moment Amazon delivery came - he rushed out of his breakfast chair and literally pushed us to get the package. Thank you Ms. Mina & Mr. Lima for such an exceptional job. Cherry on top - got it at a discounted price of 29 bucks :) Absolutely worth every $ spent.
Although it comes with a sense of fragility and would last ten minutes in the hands of a curious child - this is Harry Potter and the Philosopher's Stone done right for a curious Adult. Every page draws you to its imaginings - its art, it's stochastic jumps of fancy in every illustration and pull out. I like this a lot. It has gone to my Harry Potter inspiration bookshelves.
Arrived well packaged and in perfect condition. I was surprised at how good it was in person compared to the photos and I must say, I'm very impressed. This is definitely the best version of any Harry Potter Book I've ever seen before, that's for sure.
Beautifully designed and well thought out. A must have for any potter head. There are many fold-outs and popups so probably not suited for younger children but its amazing for teens and adults getting into the series. Its a heavy tome of a book as well so very excited to see what they do for the rest of the series!
I pre-ordered this as a gift to myself, and i am SO IN LOVE with the quality of this book. I re-read Harry Potter yearly, and am so keen to collect the whole series bit by bit by this artist. Highly recommend!
