Harry Potter: A Journey Through A History of Magic (Harry Potter: A History of Magic Exhibition) Reviews

  • Jess The Bookworm

    A great companion read for lovers of the Harry Potter series. This book goes through JK Rowling's inspirations for elements of her world building, taking us through the curriculum at Hogwarts, the characters and magical instruments used throughout.

    It includes sketches done by JK Rowling herself, showing us exactly what she pictured her characters to look like. It also has early drafts of certain chapters with all of the editing notes and her handwritten plans for the series. Her mind just works

    While I loved the tidbits from JK Rowling and found the historical facts of magic and witchcraft fascinating, I would love to understand the magical world, which Harry lives better. Like, where is that encyclopedia/History of Magic by Bathilda Bagshot we all want??

    But again, this is really beautiful and for someone who can't afford the illustrated editions, I was charmed by the beautiful drawings. My favorite has to be the Diagon Alley one.

  • Miranda Reads

    That's right.

    There's a Harry Potter exhibit.

    And it's a whole motherfudging ocean away.

    Deeeeeep Breaths.

    For those of you, like myself, simmering in a cauldron of jealous envy...well, at least we can still live vicariously through books. You can still experience (almost) all the wonder and magic of the History of Magic exhibit through one of the two souvenir books. This is the children's version - as noted by its soft cover and absence of the 'ickier' kinds of magic.

    We go class-by-class and



    Figure 1: Remus Lupin, one of the many DADA professors who taught at Hogwarts


    As always, we have the magnificent illustrations of Jim Kay that just brighten up the entire book. And if I had one criticism, it would be that the images from Jim Kay are taken from the other illustrated Harry Potter books. Some of the professors were not included in the images simply because Kay hadn't painted them in the 3 published illustrated HPs. I would have loved to see new versions of the professor paintings and paintings of additional professors.

    Despite that - this was truly, a joy to read ! ...more

    In 2017 'The British Library' mounted an exhibition called "Harry Potter: A Journey Through a History of Magic" to commemorate the 20th anniversary of the publication of the first Harry Potter novel. This is a companion book to the library's presentation. Harry Potter fans will find much to like in this tribute, which is BEAUTIFUL to look at and FUN to read.

    The book contains a variety of wonderful tidbits related to the Harry Potter series. Examples follow.

    The volume contains original sketches

    Fantastic!

  • Maddie McKechnie

    Firstly, I am so happy this book exists. The British Library's "A History of Magic" exhibition is something I'd have loved to see in person, so thankfully this book was published to enable everyone to see the special treasures and artefacts from magical history.

    There's two main threads in this book, the first being a look back at historical artefacts from folklore and magic - such as The Ripley Scroll from the 16th century, which contains a recipe for creating a Philosopher's Stone.

    The second

    It's about Harry Potter so of course I'm going to enjoy it. I just felt that I knew most of this already especially as I've also read the other book of the exhibition, Harry Potter: A History of Magic. This seemed a little redundant as it didn't really tell me anything new. I would suggest that other readers choose just one of them to read.

  • Kristen

    4.5

    I'm going to be honest, I think that if I read pretty much ANYTHING Harry Potter that I would like it. Even if it sucked pretty hardcore, I would probably like it to some degree. Anytime I am able to be back in the Harry Potter world, I am a happy girl.

    This book is a really cool mash-up of Harry Potter and history. I like that aspect because it really emphasizes how much thought and research went into the creation of the Harry Potter world. The book also includes hand-written excerpts from t
