This month we were quite lucky to get some new updates about the world of Harry Potter, I decided to make a list of all!
Fantastic Beasts and where to find them Illustrated edition
I kinda screamed a bit when I saw the most beautiful cover for this book, I honestly think this will be one of the most beautiful illustrated editions ever. The artwork is made by Olivia Lomenech Gill. This beautiful edition of Fantastic beasts will be released on 7 November 2017 published by Bloomsbury.
Harry Potter and the Philosopher’s Stone (Illustrated edition) has been brought to life in kindle form!
On 5 September this amazing kindle edition will be released and I’m honestly really fricking excited about this because.. This edition will actually make the illustrations.. MOVE! Yes you have read this well, it will actually move just like the newspapers in the books/films (weren’t we all jealous about this) so we will get a bit of the wizarding reading experience too (screams). Note that you need kindle motion for this it’s compatible on Fire tablets and the free Kindle app for iOS and Android.
2 new books about the world of Harry Potter
We are getting blessed with 2 (!) new books about the world of Harry Potter later this year, in October. I say the world of Harry Potter as it’s not about Harry himself. First of all, we are getting ‘Harry Potter: A history of magic’ it “promises to take readers on a fascinating journey through the subjects studied at Hogwarts School of Witchcraft and Wizardry – from Alchemy and Potions classes through to Herbology and Care of Magical Creatures.” This book was mentioned several times in the books
BUT we are also very lucky to get ‘Harry Potter: A Journey Through the History of Magic’ which is “packed with unseen sketches and manuscript pages from J.K. Rowling, magical illustrations from Jim Kay and weird, wonderful and inspiring artifacts that have been magically released from the archives at the British Library.”
Also to celebrate the 20th anniversary of the series J.K Rowling announced there will be a Harry Potter exhibit about the history of magic which will be featured at the British library (20 October 2017 – 28 February 2018) you can get tickets HERE be quick tickets are selling quickly!!
