2. 'Harry Potter Page to Screen: The Complete Filmmaking Journey'

Harry Potter Page to Screen: The Complete Filmmaking Journey ( HarperCollins, 540 pp., $45.90), the highly anticipated coffeetable book by Bob McCabe, is roughly the size and weight of your average atlas, and filled with gorgeous full-page photos of movie stills as well as on-set pictures. The chapters detail characters in the movies, props, makeup, special effects, and more, and each movie gets a full breakdown with stories from the actors about the filming process and behind-the-scenes secrets from the production team. Check out the list of heights of each actor when they began filming (Rupert Grint was only four feet ten inches), costume drawings for Harry's Triwizard Tournament uniform, and pictures of the costume fittings for Daniel Radcliffe when he played six other characters in "Deathly Hallows: Part One."
