The Wizard’s Collection 2 – Box Details – 2.3 Books
Today’s post is about the two books that are included in this set. They are the Label Collection and Catalogue of Artefacts.
This is a blue softback book with gold writing. It isn’t a sticker collection but a book of labels collected from across the films presented on shiny paper. So, do I write my name inside the front cover?
The level of detail of these labels to me just demonstrates the immense effort the production team put into creating the world. Many of these we wouldn’t have spotted whilst watching the films but I’m going to give it a go now. There are labels of things I think that are only referred to in the books and not just the films and I’m guessing many they just made up themselves. I’ve chosen to show you Essence of Dittany (useful in cases of Splinching) and the Decoy Detonator.
There are, however, potions labels, ingredients, Honeydukes products, Weasley’s Wizard Wheezes products, Labels from Dumbledore’s memory vials and more – outlined page by page below.
