About this deal

In some shots in the early films, you can very unambiguously see straight through from one side to another, but in some photos of the miniature from the Warner Bros. Hogsmeade station and Hogsmeade are right outside of the school grounds around a path through the entrance gates, including the Shrieking Shack even though the building is built and owned by the school. The language in the books is not always particularly precise, so there is a little room for flexibility in the interpretation.

Most purchases from business sellers are protected by the Consumer Contract Regulations 2013 which give you the right to cancel the purchase within 14 days after the day you receive the item. In the first three books, the corridor with the portrait hole to Gryffindor Tower seems to be on the third floor, but starting in Goblet of Fire, it’s very clearly on the seventh.But ultimately, there’s a real beauty in all these drawings, even if I always find myself wanting more. We have all wanted to try and figure out how the evolution of the exterior progressed, how things fit together and to get a real sense of the epic scale of Hogwarts school. Mas resumo, acho que para quem gosta de desenho arquitetónico, detalhe, e é apreciador da série, o livro vale a pena, mas mais vale comprá-lo em promoção. Insight Editions reveals a detailed look at what went into this painstaking process in their new book, Harry Potter: The Blueprints. I’m sure that would have doubled the size of the book, given the detail that’s displayed for every design.

In a twist that will shock precisely zero longtime readers, I’m finding lots of small discrepancies between shots of miniatures, location shoots at Alnwick Castle, CG long shots, etc. When I'm not daydreaming about being a world-traveling Magizoologist like Newt, you can find me reading, writing, learning languages, dabbling in design, and doing all things music- and film-related. The top of window X is supposed to be even with the top of window Y, which is about a third as tall as window X, but if I move window X to be even with window Y, it’s no longer in the right place relative to feature Z…that sort of thing.

I was very surprised to discover last summer that during my trip to Europe, I could tell the difference between 10th and 15th century cathedral windows at a glance! That revision stuck around till Half-Blood Prince, when it was replaced with a single tower echoing the bell towers’ design. But I’ve been re-reading the entire book series as well, taking notes anytime some aspect of the castle or its environs is described – after all, if you pay attention, you’ll notice that it’s a completely different castle. As usual, I’m striving for something of a happy medium, but weighted toward the main 1/24th-scale miniature.
