It was a match made in Harry Potter heaven when Miraphora Mina and Eduardo Lima met working on the set of Harry Potter and the Chamber of Secrets. Both having successful careers in graphic design, they joined forces to form MinaLima and together embellished the movie world of Harry Potter.
A crooked, rickety town house on 26 Greek Street is Miraphora and Eduardo’s creations are brought to life. Hogwarts acceptance letters stream from the fire place and The Tales of Beedle the Bard line the bookshelves of this old house, as if Grimmauld Place has suddenly appeared in the West End. The exhibition shows just how detailed J.K Rowling’s wonderful wizarding world was on the big screen. Three rooms of the house display original artefacts and prints from the Potter universe and there is even a gift shop on the ground level, so you can take your favourite Weasleys’ Wizard Wheezes merchandise home with you. The gallery will be open until next year and entry is free, so don’t worry if you can’t take it all in on your first visit — there is plenty of time to go back again and again.
The exhibition of Harry Potter memorabilia will be on display at The House of MinaLima from 3 June 2016.
26 Greek Street, London
