There’s a new movie set in the Harry Potter cinematic universe due out in just a few short weeks, so naturally there’s a flurry of new Potter merch being shoved out the door to capitalize on that fact. Some stuff, like the Harry Potter Trivial Pursuit expansion, is a little disappointing – the questions are insultingly easy, even for someone like me who doesn’t functionally understand the difference between Harry Potter and The Worst Witch.
Then there’s stuff like these Moleskine books which, frankly, are bloody amazing. Not only are the covers gorgeous to look at – one features the Marauder’s Map while the other features Harry’s Patronus silhouetted above an embossed Harry casting Expecto Patronum – but the pages themselves feel like the parchment paper that Harry and his school chums would use in class. Y’know, if it were all real, that is (sorry to break the illusion, Richard).
