Pottermore

Harry Potter: A History of Magic
by British Library,  J.K. Rowling

Rating: 4 out of 5.

Confession time, I only leafed through this and read a bit here or there. Lovely drawings by Jim Kay. I was surprised to see the sketches done by Rowling herself. I didn‘t know she sketches.

CHAPTER THREE HERBOLOGY was right down my alley. I have always had a thing for natural history and the depiction of all those plants hit my spot. And then there is Jim Kay and his Study of Mandrakes…

And the gnomes were delightful as well.

CHAPTER SIX DIVINATION
I didn‘t know that there was such a thing as fortune-telling teacups! Tasseography!? Ok.

Another fun chapter with great sketches was about the Care of Magical Creatures.

Nicely done. Great book for the more curious fans of Harry Potter and trivia lovers in general. I am sure I would have enjoyed the exhibition very much.

  1. I wish I could say I was OVER Harry Potter (esp. given the latest controversies around Rowling)… but then a book like this comes out, and all my good intentions thrown out of the window
