Several days ago we showed you some lovely inside looks at the Deluxe Harry Potter and the Half-Blood Prince pop up gift book. Today, there are new photos of the book online.  As sported by the ever lovely and fascinating Luna Lovegood courtesy of the Quibbler, we learn that fans everywhere will be receiving a pair of Spectrespecs that are included with the new book (photos here and here). While the photos are slightly blurry, you can also see pop up pages for Dumbledore and Fawkes, Lift the flap on the Horcruxes including the Diadem of RavenclawHarry and Ginny, Hogwarts,actually including all four house crests, Death Eaters including Bellatrix, Draco and Lucius, and much more via this link.

Thanks much to Daniel and Potterish!

I love how this book doesn’t try to conceal any information at all. Like it very blatantly says that Draco Malfoy becomes a Death Eater and then it shows Rowena Ravenclaw’s diadem in the Horcrux section. I mean, it’s all old news to fans, but not to people who might just watch the movies and decide to look through the book…but I really want this book. Ha ha.

Yes they’re already selling it in UK bookstores! I saw it in both Borders and Waterstones :)
Worth getting – I love it!

Yeah, they do reveal a lot of potential spoilers for people who haven’t read the books, however I thought it was interesting that while they revealed Ravenclaw’s diadem as a Horcrux, they left out the one that we have known about the longest…Tom Riddle’s Diary. They only have seven, including the one with the ? mark…and that one sure isn’t the diary!

I think I might just have to buy this book as soon as possible now. I would certainly enjoy wearing SpectreSpecs all the time.
