    ¡Qué bonito es este libro!Quiero aclarar, que este libro es puro coleccionismo, porque en cuanto a información, creo que no añade nada que no sepamos. Lo que sí me ha gustado es como en este libro podemos encontrar todas las varitas de la saga y curiosidades de por qué las hicieron así. Yo lo he disfrutado mucho a pesar de haber sabido la mayoría de información. Si sois fans de Harry Potter, creo que es un libro que no puede faltar en vu...

    3.25 stars...rounding is not an option. An important phrase that is excluded from the title, but is found on and in the book itself, is "From the Films of..." Who cannot appreciate a Harry Potter book that is centered around providing beautiful and detailed pictures of the most important props of the movies? THE WANDS. Although it should not be surprising, I find myself taken aback by the fact that all eight of the Harry Potter movies had an art...

    This was such an awesome book. Every important wizard's wand is included in this book with up-close and detailed photographs. The photos were breathtaking. It is almost like you can reach out and grab them out of the book itself. Every Harry Potter fan should add this to their collection.My personal favorites were: Hermione Granger, Ginny Weasley, Luna Lovegood, Professor Lupin, Professor Slughorn, Scabior, Alecto Carrow, and Xenophilius Lovegood...

    As detailed and thoughtful as the wands themselves, all the hard work and thought put in by the art department and even in wand choreography, was fun and fascinating to read. I love how they designed wands that represented their characters but had a personality of their own. I also enjoyed seeing the wands and explanations from less recognizable wizards in the movie, like some of the death eaters. This makes a great Christmas gift for any Harry P...

    This was so interesting! A lot of the information about the characters I knew, but it was fun to know more about wands and what the actors thought about their wands :D

    It is a lovely book indeed. So why the 3 stars, you may ask?Well, it does says on the cover and it is pretty obvious this is related to the movie adaptations, not so much about the books wand lore. That’s fine, but I thought I’d clarified. There isn’t any new information about wands. Don’t expect many in-depth analysis about wand making and I guess that’s fine on that side since this is not the subject (but if you asked me, it should h...

    Essential Harry Potter info. You've really got to appreciate the art department's attention to detail and creativity. Wands are such an iconic and important aspect of Harry Potter and the magic in the Wizarding World that it makes sense to focus on the individual wands. While there isn't a full description for each wand, there is cool background info about the designer's inspiration or method. My favorite parts are the pull outs for Hagrid's umbr...

    Being a really big Harry Potter fan I knew the importance of wands! I already knew every witch and wizard had a different and unique design, but seeing the wands next to the profiles with a short description was beautiful.The book is simple and to the point which makes for a quick and easy read :)
