Amazon UK has unveiled a new Harry Potter book set that details the movie-making journey. This special book set of the films will include “never-before-seen art and text” in five volumes. Also included among the new material is a replica of the set prop of the Monster Book of Monsters, and a cloth-bound Harry Potter: Page to Screen. Only 3000 sets will be sold worldwide, starting December 4, for £552 (about $800 USD). Amazon’s description of the set reads:

Worthy of a vault at Gringotts, this amazing limited edition collection features never-before-published art and text chronicling the making of the Harry Potter films. The set is limited to just 3,000 copies worldwide.

Five volumes focus on the filmmaking, showing how the team designed locations, graphics, costumes, creatures, and special effects. Inside you’ll find a deluxe book of the paintings of Hogwarts along with a keepsake book chronicling the lasting relationships between cast and crew. The final volume is a cloth-bound edition of the New York Times Best-seller, Harry Potter: Page to Screen. Completing the library is a scale prop replica of The Monster Book of Monsters, along with a gilded, oversized portfolio with five frame-able prints of concept art. All of these precious objects are housed in a collectible box that looks like it came from Diagon Alley. Arriving at your doorstep with a numbered certificate of authenticity, this limited edition is the ultimate collectible for any wizard of Muggle.

Avatar Imageweasleywannabe1997 says: Warner Brothers' Patronus must be a cow -- they are milking this for all it is worth!!!! Seriously, though, it sounds lovely, for those who can afford it -- much like the giant Wizard's Collection. I will just keep hoping for the final two boxes for the Ultimate Collection!Avatar ImageLunaLuver says: Merlin, these sets just keep getting more and more expensive. Sounds nice and all but you wont be seeing me drop $800 on it.Avatar Imagemuggle..andproudofit says: Me want...Not for $800 though,so not gonna happen Warner Bros: you suck XPAvatar ImageSigourney1990 says: WOW, sounds amazing. I wish I had the money for it!Avatar Imagesilverkacy says: I can't have this or the Wizard's collection. I do have Page to Screen, though. But my life will never be complete :( I actually have enough money for the Ultimate Collection, but I'm saving it for college.Avatar Imageglow_freak says: Like the Wizard's Collection - beautiful, but come on! We're not all as rich as JK!Avatar ImageWeetzie says: Who can afford that? ughAvatar ImageRavenclaw78 says: I think that anyone who could afford this set should take the money and donate regular sets of the books to schools / libraries in underprivilleged areas, donate to JKR's charity, or do something good for the world. Of course, if you have enough for two of these sets, make sure to buy yourself one too! I don't begrudge anyone for wanting this, but it seems like that much money could sure go to a good cause!Avatar Imagemikey says: £552 faints - I so need it in my life, but can't justify that amount. I seriously need my head examined for buying the wizarding dvd collection for 170 quid. I suppose onevday, if I win the lottery..Avatar Imagehewy says: In this economy, what the blue blazes are these people thinking??? I'm sure these were all printed and made in China for pennies on the dollar and they expect us to fork over $800+. I thought the Wizard Collection was expensive but this takes the cake!Avatar Imagehorcruxhunter7 says: Amazing! I'd love this...Avatar ImagePixieQueen83 says: As someone who is interested in the world of film-making and acting, I've placed my pre-order. I can't wait until photos of the items included are released! I'd love to see what each individual book cover looks like.Avatar ImageWON_TWO says: That price is just ridiculous!Avatar ImagePixieQueen83 says: It seems that Amazon has removed the item page from their website ... how can this be? :(Avatar ImageSilviusPrince says: This is now on Amazon.com for $600. http://www.amazon.com/gp/aw/d/1612185916/ref=redir_mdp_mobile?keywords=HARRY%20POTTER%3A%20PAGE%20TO%20SCREEN&qid=1352338672&ref_=sr_1_7&sr=8-7
