Harry Potter: Page to Screen
Eight Films, four directors, hundreds of actors, over 10 years of filming one unique series. Now Harry Potter: Page to Screen brings together every aspect of the series’ fascinating history in one comprehensive companion volume. When a seemingly unremarkable children’s book landed in the offices of David Heyman’s offices it was relegated to a ‘low-priority’ bookshelf. It was only when a secretary - leafing through volumes at random - happened to read it, love it and pass it on to the producer by hand that the series began its momentous journey to becoming an epic cult fantasy. Now Harry Potter fans can read about every aspect of the films’ development from casting calls to the creation of the wizarding world. With hundreds of never-before-seen photographs, in-depth chapters on magical creatures, artefacts and locations as well as a film-by-film breakdown of the expansion of the Harry Potter universe, this lavishly illustrated volume takes you behind the scenes of one of the most popular film series in history. Waterstones invites you to re-visit the films, characters and landscapes of Harry Potter. Read exclusive interviews with the cast about working and growing-up on set and discover Daniel Radcliffe’s own take on the challenges of being the face of the boy who lived. A beautiful chronicle of a unique film experience.

Nigellissima takes inspiration from Italian cooking to bring the spirit of Italy into the kitchen and onto the plate, pronto. At the heart of Italian cookery lies a celebration of food that is fresh, tasty and unpretentious; Nigella Lawson reflects this in recipes that are simple and speedy, elevating everyday eating into no-fuss feasts. Italian food has colonised the world. Nigellissima shows us how and why in over 100 delicious dishes - from telephone-cord pasta with Sicilian pesto to the crustless Meatzza, from Sardinian couscous to Venetian stew, from penne to papardelle, from ragu to risotto, from Italian apple pie and no-churn ices to panna cotta and sambuca kisses - in a round-Italy quickstep that culminates in a festive chapter of party food, with an Italian-inspired Christmas feast as its mouthwatering centrepiece. From the traditional to the unfamiliar, here are recipes to excite the taste buds and the imagination, without stressing the cook. Nigella's gastronomic heart is in Italy, and in this new book she conjures up, with passionate relish, the warmth, simplicity and directness of Italian cooking, with an Anglo-twist. Illustrated with gorgeous photographs to instruct and delight Nigellissima is accompanied by a major new BBC TV series.
Nigella Christmas comprises reliable, practical, easy-to-follow recipes and reassuring advice about planning and cooking ahead, presented in a gorgeous glittering package which will make this the ultimate gift to yourself and for family and friends. Illustrated with over 250 fabulous full-colour photographs by Lis Parsons (photographer of the bestselling Nigella Express), including method photos and lavish spreads, Nigella Christmas is in a new, larger and irresistible format. It includes everything from scrumptious Christmas cakes and puddings, to quick and easy homemade presents (biscuits, preserves and other standbys) and edible tree-decorations, recipes for feeding friends and family over the holiday season with minimum stress and maximum enjoyment (cook and freeze ahead or slow-cook in the oven), as well as Christmas party food and drinks. And, of course, exciting and inspiring variations for the Main Event itself - from traditional super-juicy turkey, festive ginger-baked ham, special trimmings and the Ultimate Christmas Pud, all the way to the special vegetarian Christmas feast, by way of goose or pork-and-cranberry options and a Prodigious Pavlova...Her cakes, as always, gladden the heart, and her 'At-a-Glance Christmas Dinner Countdown' helps take the stress and strain out of the Big Day itself. Nigella Christmas will surely be a perennial favourite, the book we will all reach for - for inspiration and reassurance - as soon as the Christmas lights start going up...
