Miraphora Mina and Eduardo Lima — known collectively as design duo MinaLima — today unveiled five gorgeous Harry Potter wallpaper prints based on their graphic design work for the eight ‘Potter’ films. The five designs include the enchanted Marauder’s Map, the Black family tree, collages of both the Daily Prophet newspapers and Hogwarts library books, and a cute and playful Quidditch motif.
Each of the wallpaper designs is available through MinaLima’s website, or at their physical ‘House of MinaLima’ galleries in both London and Osaka. MinaLima designed all the graphics for the eight Harry Potter films, as well as — to date — two Fantastic Beasts movies. Earlier this year, we profiled the design duo in an in-depth Harry Potter graphic design retrospective.

Beauxbatons headmistress Olympe Maxime and Hogwarts caretaker Argus Filch (complete with Mrs Norris) will join the Harry Potter Funko Pop! Vinyl line when they’re released exclusively for this year’s New York Comic Con.
The convention takes place from 3–6 October from which time both figures will also be available for a limited general sale at your favourite Pop! collectible stores (so, every four-walled room on the planet). Maxime and Filch complete a huge wave of Yule Ball themed Pop! Vinyl figures released in 2019 and can also be found in Funko’s 2019 Harry Potter Advent calendar.
Earlier this year, Rita Skeeter, Fawkes and Nagini were released as San Diego Comic Con exclusives, while a trio of Irish-flavoured Weasley children was released in March. If you’re still craving more ‘Potter’ Pop! figures, you’ll be able to collect Nymphadora Tonks from next March, as well as the trio with their Patronus animals.

Bloomsbury will publish the fourth of their 20th anniversary house edition series of novels with the release of Harry Potter and the Goblet of Fire on 23 January. Goblet of Fire was first published in the UK on 8 July 2000. This anniversary release comes only seven months after Prisoner of Azkaban and sees the fourth series of house editions released in time for the publisher’s Trwizard Tournament themed book night.
The four Goblet of Fire house editions will be published in both paperback and hardback and feature intricate cover and internal artwork by illustrator Levi Pinfold. Common to each edition is the central illustration of the flaming Goblet, while a vignette of iconography unique to each house adorn the jackets.
For Goblet of Fire, those illustrations feature an ‘element’ specific to each house: fire, earth, air and water. The red Gryffindor house edition (fire) is bordered by Sirius Black’s head in the fireplace, a Hungarian Horntail, Harry on his Firebolt and Mad-Eye Moody’s magical eye. The blue Ravenclaw edition (air) and yellow Hufflepuff edition (earth) include the Beauxbatons Carriage, wandmaker Ollivander, Fleur Delacour; and the Triwizard Maze, Cedric Diggory and a Niffler, respectfully. The green Slytherin edition (water) shows Tom Riddle’s headstone, Viktor Krum, the Hogwarts Giant Squid and the Durmstrang Ship.
In addition, each book features an illustration of its respective house animal on the binding and new internal illustrations by Pinfold will include Rubeus Hagrid (Gryffindor), Garrick Ollivander (Ravenclaw), Cedric Diggory (Hufflepuff) and Lord Voldemort (Slytherin).
The Goblet of Fire house editions can be pre-ordered now over at Bloomsbury’s website ahead of their January release. Pre-orderers will receive an exclusive A5-sized foiled print of the coloured cover artwork design.
