This is a Maxis Recolour which means that it is a recolour of an item that already exists in your game. Please check the Expansion pack requirements to see which game pack it recolours.

This custom content if it is not clothing, may require a seperate download to work properly. This is available at Colour Enable Package (CEP) by Numenor.

Picked Upload! This is a picked upload! It showcases some of the best talent and creativity available on MTS and in the community.
Here are the books from Harry Potter 1 - 6. They're for the Renaissance Bookcase.

I noticed that some of the books are upside down, but I can't fix it because several books have the same covers, so if I would fix one book cover that were upside down, another book would be upside down... Haha, not even I understand what it is I'm trying to explain :bump:

*Update*
I have added 2 new sets of books :wave:

You must have the expansion or stuff packs listed below installed to use this custom content. Please see the post text for any exceptions.

awesome can't wait to use.

Do what you feel in your heart to be right - for you'll be criticized anyway. You'll be damned if you do, and damned if you don't.

hey, to save you some time reading the books over again(I know it takes awile, I'v read them all more times than I dare to count, I had to re-buy the fourth book when both covers feel off from over use...)

try the Harry Potter Lexicon(search it in google) it has EVERYTHING Harry Potter there.

Can you, or will you ever try something similar to this on some different maxis or custom made bookcases?

Like the maxis-made bookcase that comes with university?
