If you've played the game you know how affectionately it was obviously made and to every detail. This book is filled with gorgeous art and profiles of everything from environs to characters and more and interesting designer insight and commentary throughout. A really nice coffee table style book that will extend your experience with the game even after you've completed it. I collect many "art of" books across movies + games and more and this is one of the best in recent memory.

The Art and Making of Hogwarts Legacy is worth it for fans of both the game and those who love collecting Wizarding World memorabilia.


It contains extensive artwork and developer commentary that gives you a magical look into this whimsical wonderful world.


I'm a huge Harry Potter fan and Hogwarts Legacy is the ultimate dream to play and immerse yourself in.


My only disappointment is that it came slightly dented in one corner, but it wasn't that noticeable and I'm having too much fun playing the game to be truly bothered about it.


For any fan or collector out there, take a trip to Gringotts and grab some of those Galleons, Sickles and Knuts for this beautiful collector's book for Hogwarts Legacy!

First let me say that this is not the Guide Book, that is a separate book that has not yet been released. This book is about the Art and Making of Hogwarts Legacy…think of it as a “behind the scenes” look at Hogwarts thru the lens of the legacy game. This look allows you to enjoy the art and illustrating processes that went into the game without actually playing the game. The price lines up with other “behind the scenes making” books in the Harry Potter fandom. I see it more as a collector’s piece that once you have enjoyed reading it you would display it on a bookcase or coffee table for guests to peruse.

This is just beautiful. Usually I see more words than art but this has SO MUCH art in it. They show so much information, enemy sketches, complete renders, 3D model stuff, concept development art, etc. Some of it I wasn’t sure if it was a render or not! They credit every artist and tell you what is a render from the game. I am in love with just skimming through this and I rarely read art of books, usually just look at the art too inspire myself in art. But I want to read this. I’m so excited read this and enjoy every bit of it!!

This book is a massive collection of all the details of the amazing video game Hogwarts Legacy. Some reviews complain about it for not being a guide which makes no sense because it's not in the description. Throughout the pages, you'll find a lot of images, renders, drawings, illustrations, and text (which I loved) explaining how they enhanced the Wizarding World and made it playable. Opposite to what some people wrote, this is totally worth the money. I'm incredibly grateful to all the creators and artists from Hogwarts Legacy for giving us this gem.

This book is a beautiful one to look through and read alittle about how the game was made. This is most definitely a collectors item. Please note that this is NOT a game guide. It is just a book about the artwork and making of the game. I love it and will place it on the shelf next to the rest of my HP collection.

Review posted on 02/13/23 by Amazon.com

This book is insane, quality has a price and I guess its 70$ haha! I have been playing Hogwarts Legacy since the 7th of February and now that I have this book I am able to compare what I'm doin in game with what is in the book! This book includes some really cool art and concept art at such a high resolution it is mind boggling, and the pages are crisp and thick! The best part about this book though is seeing things like broomsticks/items or areas at what the Artist originally intended or envisioned! So Cool and highly recommend this book even though it is a bit pricey, you cant go wrong with the quality and love that is in this book :).
