My favorite bits were the annotations and illustrations by J. K. Rowling. Still waiting on the actual textbook "A History of Magic" though... Not to mention "Hogwarts, A History." ( )

Not many books make me quite so happy as those which explore the Harry Potter universe, and this one was no exception. It was a little bit of a tease though, because I know that the fullsize exhibition book from the British Library has way more content and commentary on the history behind the Harry Potter series and that the real exhibition can't quite be duplicated. Oh well, on to reading the full book soon enough! ( )

This highly designed book is a walk through the British Library's exhibition, Harry Potter: a journey through a History of Magic. Very well put together, the exhibition explores the historical sources for the magic found in J.K. Rowling's books through artifacts from the British Library's collections, and a few other museums. The sections are based on the Hogwarts curriculum: Potions and alchemy, Herbology, Charms, Divination, Defense against the Dark Arts, and Care of Magical Creatures. A fun and informative romp. ( )

Some of the "sources" selected seemed, odd. And there was way too many pages spent on Divination. That's just my opinion o'course. ;) BUT, all of the handwritten notes, never-before-seen original manuscript pages, and original illustrations by Rowling made this worth the read. I'd buy a copy of this book for those alone.

Recommended for diehard Harry Potter fans.

"A collection of artifacts from the British Library Exhibition in the UK: Harry Potter: A History of Magic"

A unique type of exhibit catalog that mixes fiction and fact, history and magic, this book is a wonderful way to revisit the world of Harry Potter - all seven books plus the play and the three other books - with many incredible items from the British Library and other museums mixed in.

Revisiting quotes from all the books, seeing J.K. Rowling's manuscript pages (sometimes handwritten) with edits, learning about all of the Hogwarts classes, and seeing pictures of real items like the Ripley Scroll and an astrolabe all contribute to the experience of this book. I also loved Jim Kay's marvelous artwork - closer to what I imagined as I read than what appeared in the Potter movies - and, best of all, Rowling's original sketches of the characters and settings.

There are also a few "magic" activities for kids, and I learned that dugongs may have been the original inspiration for sirens or mermaids. (See https://www.nationalgeographic.com/animals/mammals/d/dugong/) ( )
