I recently found a huge collection of ruined old books at the local dump and immediatly thought of Harry Potter the Hogwarts library.
This is a tutorial to show how I converted these old encyclopeadias into Hogwarts style spellbooks.
These books are a great way to display your Harry Potter wands or other collactables, and are very cheap and pretty quick to do, all you need is and old book some easily avaliable supplies and a fair ammount of patience!
Step 1: Choosing a book
In short be VERY careful that you're not going to destroy a first edition copy of "Peter Pan" or "The Count of Monte Cristo"
Below is a pic of the book as I found it
Step 2: Picking the new title
It's a list of the fictional books that J.K Rowling invented for her Potter series.
Then I typed the title into Word and then Photoshop and played with the fonts and styles until the text looked appropriate. I was basing the style of my book on the "Advanced Potion Making" book pictured on the cover of the adult version of "Harry Potter and the Half Blood Prince"
Once your happy with the way the title looks, print it out and tape it to the cover of your old book.
