    Sep 6, 2012, 1:24 PM - The Daily Prophet - Harry Potter #1

    The Daily Prophet seen on the Harry Potter films has been a personal obssession for quite a few years.
    This one has been a really, really, really long term project that I truly dedicated myself to complete.

    That said, I have decided to update this thread to show off a little bit of the work I've done.

    The Daily Prophet measures approximately 35 cm by 57 cm when it is folded in half.

    Each leaf is laser printed in high quality, individually aged, ironed and hand cut.

    The front page is also embelished with hand applied gold leaf details.



    This prop includes content you would find on any muggle, normal newspaper.
    Though everything is slightly shifted so that it can fit into the wizarding universe.

    Even the date on the newspapers, instead of the regular day, month and week standard.
    Is actually maked using the horoscope & astrological movements at the time of printing.





    Besides the main headlines that are featured on the HP books and shown up close throughout the films.
    The Graphic Design team had to come up with a lot of in-universe content to fill up a full prop newspaper.
    That includes loads of fun headlines with sort of hidden stories between the muggle & the wizarding world.





    Promotional "Hocus Tokens" for some very special discounts on wizarding ephemera.
    Advertisements that range from "Gringotts Savings Accounts" to "Self-Hypnotism" lessons.
    And also a nice variety of Magical Symbols Games, Runokko, Crossrunes and Crossword puzzles.







    Comments and critics are always welcome.

    Thanks for looking!

    Very cool! When and how are you getting one (some) printed?
    Silk screen would be a route I'd consider....

    Thanks @LTsmash1200!

    Thanks @LorduDesign!

    There were quite a few try outs before achieving that smooth quality result and that particular color shade.
    Glad you liked it! (;

    Hi

    For the simple use of Harry Potter Wikia, you could transcribe us texts shows in ads for "Wandistons", "Self-hypnotism", "Beard-bag", "How to beguile people" and "Classified (witch's coven, darks detectors...)" ?

    This has nothing of plagiarizing your work, just to share these youngs kicks with potterhead !

    Thank you in advance for your cooperation.
