Harry Potter graphic design duo Miraphora Mina and Eduardo Lima (MinaLima) today announced the fourth print in their limited edition ‘Potter’ magical moments graphic series. Titled ‘Better be…Gryffindor!’, the new print celebrates Harry’s Hogwarts Sorting Hat experience.
The numbered print is available in both a standard and premium finish over at MinaLima’s website. The first three prints in the series celebrate Harry’s discovery of his magical abilities, as well as his journeys to both Diagon Alley and Hogwarts School of Witchcraft and Wizardry.
MinaLima are the talented team behind all aspects of graphic design in the Wizarding World (that’s both Harry Potter and Fantastic Beasts). Earlier this year I had the pleasure of profiling the artists for a behind-the-scenes look at their Harry Potter craft.

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.
