hey I was wondering if you are thinking about making more books in the future. I think we all agree that fans need some good gilderoy lockhart trilogy hahaha
I definitely want to make the Gilderoy series for sure.

I'm working on another book, mostly for myself, as it's not seen in the movies. I'll post it up once i'm happy with the result.

Oh no! Hope you feel better soon Benny!! Whenever you do, can you please add me to your list! I am DYING for your book replica! I would appreciate it so so much!

Hi Benny - can I also be added to the interest list?

Hope you're not (over)working your hand too soon - I've damaged my tendons before and flexing those hands is no fun...
Hi Both,

Apologies for missing these messages. I've now added you. And mika yes you are right. i've ended up in a splint for 2 weeks, so it's been slow going. i'm getting there though.

Hi All,

I am doing a run of the Life & Lies of Albus Dumbledore prop I've been making:

View attachment 555203 View attachment 555204 View attachment 1307819 View attachment 555205 View attachment 555206
View attachment 555209 View attachment 555210 View attachment 555211 View attachment 555212 View attachment 555213

I have recreated the prop version of the cover, as detailed as I can. It will be foiled and embossed to match. The inside cover matches the sample images I managed to find online.
The book is 318 pages long that I've stitched together that make for an actual book to read. Hopefully it makes sense and it's fun to read, I certainly think so! :p

Please note that as each cover is handmade there may be some slight differences between your copy and the pictures seen here. I try to fit in making the books around work and other commitments in life. so time varies on how quick I can make them.

The cost of each book will be £200. I live in the UK so if shipping overseas there will be additional cost for insured delivery. If ordering multiple books there may be less postage due. Payment is via Paypal, and I will send Payment details when the book is ready to send. If I dont receive an answer within a week, I will offer it to the next in the list.

Please PM or comment here for interest/questions. I'll list the order statuses/interest list in this thread, and indicate when it will be sent.

EDIT: Another RUN will be available around May-June 2022.

Cheers!

Hi All,

Just a little update. I've been hit by the snot goblin. currently resting up with Lemsip.

Luckily it's not Covid. just a normal cold. But this will mean the next few books are delayed. i'm hoping i get over it by the weekend as it's my brothers wedding. once this weekends out the way I should be able to crack the next few out pretty quick, just have no energy at the moment.

Keep well,
Benny

Hi Everyone,

Thanks for all the messages of support. I'm almost back to full strength again. So will be cracking on with the covers again this weekend. I'm about 2 weeks behind where I want to be with the books so going to try to play catch up a bit.

Apologies again for anyone that has paid and is still waiting.i don't like it when life gets in the way of doing something I love.

Best,
Benny

Hi Everyone!

5 books have been sent out today. I've got another day this weekend to crack another load out, so hopefully will be fully caught up then.

I've sent messages with tracking via DM.

Always,
Benny

Hi Benny, I'm just looking at the sample images and wanted to ask if the MV back cover is the same as the final product (i.e. no "Rita Skeeter" scrawled across the figure like the PV cover)?

No, The Rita Skeeter is still at the bottom of the back cover. This is in line with the movie screenshots:
DH1_The_Life_and_Lies_of_Albus_Dumbledore_book_cover.jpg


I really should update that image to avoid confusion. I didn't have any covers made when I uploaded that, so it's just a shot of my design file.

Thanks for pointing that out.
Benny
