The dictionary of magical spellwork is a homage to the Harry Potter series. it is a collection of all spells, counter-spells, enchantments, and jinxes that appear in either the books or movies, including an introduction into the terminology of spellwork. texts collected and edited by me.

The book is section sewn and bound by hand. the cover is screen printed.

The format is inspired by Reclam’s Universal-Bibliothek (‘universal library’)—an extensive series of simple paperback editions of literary classics for school and education that every German student is familiar with. it is the embodiment of the idea of an easily portable book that fits in every pocket.
