Old Magic – Daily Prophet Press


I recently visited the Warner Brothers Harry Potter tour. I was amazed to find an old printing press in the merchandise shop. this gave me an idea of replicating an old style look for a magazine, article or publication for a future project.

This could be made in a nice piece of printing matter. I could use the faded, aged look of the Daily Prophet newspaper from the Harry Potter films.

I really like these printing methods used. At first I thought you were just making the lines grainy in some spots because it was supposed to look like something from a very old printing press, and maybe the ink didn’t apply so evenly. But then I saw there were words in there. What would be great was if you had some sort of holgram, colour change for each picture to make it look real and animated.

Anyway here are some photos i took of the old press.
