It’s officially been one year since the opening of the wildly impressive House of MinaLima in London’s Soho, and we can’t believe how time has flown! Perhaps you’ve visited the four-storey gallery and shop when going to see Cursed Child, or maybe you’ve dedicated your time in London especially to gazing in awe at their beautiful artwork.

Whatever the case, you’re going to want to head back after tomorrow as MinaLima will be displaying new prints, and the House will undergo a complete redesign!

**UPDATE: See bottom of article for an exclusive preview of the new gallery and prints!**

Details of the updates below:

“In response to the huge popularity of the Daily Prophet newspapers, MinaLima will introduce brand new Daily Prophet prints to the first floor. They will be displayed alongside the full series of front covers and advertisement pages from The Daily Prophet, The New York Ghost and The Wizard’s Voice, as well as the iconic ‘Wanted’ posters.

Artworks from Fantastic Beasts and Where to Find Them will relocate to the gallery’s fourth floor. Touches of 1920s New York will move next to the much-loved Library on the top floor. Glittering silver walls will feature the now iconic art prints such as The Blind Pig and MACUSA insignia.”

We’ll be bringing you a sneak peak at the redesign when the gallery opens tomorrow, but in the meantime, take a look at their prints on sale here, and our recent interview with MinaLima on their illustrated Beauty and the Beast!

**UPDATE: Exclusive look at gallery & new prints**

Take a look at the new prints below. There’s a copy of Advanced Potion-Making in The House of Mina Lima, and this print shows the detail behind that beautiful prop:

This Giggle Water advert from Fantastic Beasts goes to show the extent to which the graphic design duo go to immerse themselves in the wizarding world:

As for the redesign, this room is looking busier than prior to the updates – the WANTED posters from Fantastic Beasts are positioned opposite the Undesirable No.1 posters from the Potter films, as well as Voldemort’s return being just next to newspapers announcing Gellert Grindelwald’s return. It’s an excellent way to celebrate not only the House’s first anniversary, but the start of a new era of the wizarding world!

The old newspaper room now hosts some brilliant 1920s New York prints from Fantastic Beasts:

Be sure to go see the gallery in person if you can – it’s got an excellent character and you’ll be amazed at the levels of detail in each and every work of art. If you can’t make it to the House itself, check out the prints on MinaLima’s estore here.
