This pop-up guide to Hogwarts comes to us from “master paper engineer” Matthew Reinhart. He is the mastermind behind this and other pop-ups for the publisher. The official press release describes the work as:

… an exhilarating, interactive guide to Hogwarts School of Witchcraft and Wizardry. Featuring spectacular pop-up re-creations of key locations, creatures, and characters––the entire book opens flat to form a huge pop-up map of the castle and its grounds—including the Quidditch pitch and the Forbidden Forest. Woven among the main structures, mini-pops bring to life iconic elements from the Harry Potter films––such as the Marauder’s Map and Flying Ford Anglia. With insightful behind-the-scenes text, gorgeous artwork, and meticulous construction, this showstopper book isn’t just a faithful re-creation of the iconic wizarding school—it’s a must-have collectible that raises the game for pop-up books everywhere.”
