Let's talk about: The Case of Beasts


Last year I was there on opening night to see Fantastic Beasts and Where to Find Them. 
I loved it so it is no surprise that for Christmas two of my gifts were Fantastic Beasts related. 
One of them is The Case of Beasts, Explore the Film Wizardry of Fantastic Beasts and Where to Find Them written by Mark Salisbury and designed by Mina Lima.
I love the look of this book. It is quite big and heavy and the outside is made to look like his suitcase. 
You open up the side. It is magnetic so that it flaps down on the front of the book and holds. 
When you open it up it is like a lot of the movie tie ins I have with pictures, information, and fun design bits and bobs. 
There is a section of the different characters. 
 

We also have sections for Macusa, New York City, The other characters, visual effects, and the Beasts themselves. 
There are so many fun pull out items. 
 

The design is beautiful and so fun to flip through. 
 

I read through the entire thing in the days after Christmas and really enjoyed the background information and pictures. 
It would make a great coffee table book however I have it on my Harry Potter shelf with my other books!
If you are a huge Harry Potter fan that now also loves Fantastic Beasts and you also like to get behind the scenes information you will love this book.

Peter would like this. He wanted to see the movie last month (I did too) but we didn't get the chance so we'll have to wait until it's out on DVD/Netflix. I like Harry Potter but I haven't gotten into it a lot for some reason. Peter really likes it and has read all the books and everything.

It is very different in most ways from the Harry Potter films but I loved it!
