With the upcoming launch of the new Harry Potter and the Cursed Child script and a very excited 8 year old son, I was delighted when my new Oxford University Wallpaper book from the Paper Partnership arrived at the studio. This would definitely have looked perfect in Hogwarts school of witch craft and wizardry.

Oxford is also renowned for its academic excellence and sporting heritage. The Oxbridge, Full Blue and the Varsity Wallpaper portray this heritage beautifully. My son Jamie also reckons that Ron and Harry should have used one of these bicycles instead of the flying car used in the Harry Potter movies.
