Hogwarts: The Monster Book of Monsters


The Monster Book of Monsters is used in Care of Magical Creatures while Hagrid was the teacher. It’s a vicious textbook that tries to bite the reader. To subdue the book you have to stroke it’s spine.


Using physical bricks I built a life-size version of the book. I had a lot of fun building all the details like the golden text, it’s sharp teeth and the face and spine of the book (using swords). For safety reasons I also included a belt.
