Along with the opening of the British Library’s Harry Potter exhibit, A History of Magic, two new books will be released!

Over time, many things have changed with this library in particular, which is why choosing to Read more here could give you a better understanding of what this library and others around the world were like a number of years ago.
Ever wanted to learn a little something from one of Harry’s classes? Harry Potter: A History of Magic will cover subjects studied at Hogwarts. Harry Potter – A Journey Through a History of Magic will be full of “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.”
Both books can be pre-ordered now, but won’t be out until October 20th when the exhibition officially opens. It will run until next February. This is all in honor of the 20th anniversary of Harry Potter.
In the meantime, …
There are already 20th anniversary editions of Harry Potter and the Philosopher’s Stone. These hardback and paper back versions are themed for each house. Each with special covers, sprayed edges, and full of interesting facts and information about that house.
I can personally attest that the Hufflepuff hardcover edition is worth getting, and looks great up on my shelf. What do you think of all these new books? Worth the money, or needs to be stopped? Sound off below!
