Rowling releases Pottermore with papercrafted eye candy

Today is Harry Potter’s birthday, and to celebrate this Potter author J.K. Rowling is releasing early entries to her new what I think will be fan fiction website Pottermore.

While some fans may flock to the site immediately I’m more interested in the trailer. I think well constructed papercraft is one of the coolest things about merging bookmaking with graphic design. Look at what they were able to accomplish with the pages! It blows my mind how great craftsman people can be with even the most delicate of materials. Thankfully, my metalsmithing final is not nearly so fragile.
