We've seen the magic of Harry Potter played out on the big screen, but artist Kincső Nagy wanted to add her own visual magic to the books themselves. So she created an edition the books that glow in the dark, with simple but effective pop-up illustrations.

Nagy created these books as her BA degree project. The idea was to add a little adventure to the reading experience while not distracting from the text. For the covers, she used a laser cutter to create geometric images in the books' paper cover:

For the interior, she provided her own illustrations, many of them with a pop-up quality to them, so reader could participate in the magic in some small way:
