As if the Harry Potter franchise wasn't already the most amazing thing in the entire universe, somehow Hungarian design student Kinsco Nagy has been able to take the legendary series up a notch. As her final senior design project, Nagy decided to give the Potter book series the coolest makeover ever!
Check it out:
This is what Kinsco had to say about her amazing project:
The Harry Potter books are so magical so mysterious and so adventurous. Basically these books are on the border of childhood. Therefore my goal was to redesign them with such illustrations that able to show this extraordinary atmosphere of the books. I started to experiment with interactive illustrations what not distract attention from the plot, but add to the story.
These designs are absolutely stunning. I can't imagine that they can get any better...but wait, hold on...they also...GLOW IN THE DARK?!
Seriously, these designs are an adult Potter fan's dream come true. The sleek new look still contains the adventures we fell in love with while growing up but with the benefit of owning something gorgeous that we'd be proud to display! In all honesty, I'd probably be to scared to even open them. They're just too beautiful to use!
And just in case you were unsure, the list below explains what the symbol on each cover stands for:
1.) Harry Potter and the Sorcerer’s Stone: The Philosopher’s Stone
2.) Harry Potter and the Chamber of Secrets: S for Salazar Slytherin (who created the Chamber of Secrets)
3.) Harry Potter and the Prisoner of Azkaban: Animagus
4.) Harry Potter and the Goblet of Fire: Goblet of Fire
5.) Harry Potter and the Order of the Phoenix: Phoenix Feather (Fawkes’ warnings)
6.) Harry Potter and the Half-Blood Prince: Bat represents Snape (Who was the Half blood Prince)
7.) Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows: The 3 Deathly Hallows
Pretty cool, huh? But wait, the awesomeness doesn't stop there. Nagy revamped the concept behind the traditional pop-up book and created beautiful interactive art that truly brings the magic of the wizarding world to life.
They really move!
This is probably the closest we'll ever get to moving portraits...
Yes, I am an adult....
And yes, I want these pop-up books, and I want them now!
But alas, none of us will be owning these art pieces anytime soon. Although Nagy has already finished the covers on all seven novels, she has only completed the interactive illustrations for Harry Potter and the Philosopher's Stone and has yet to work on the other six.
