Each chapter showcases a treasure trove of artefacts from the British Library and othercollections around the world, beside exclusive manuscripts, sketches and illustrationsfrom the Harry Potter archive. There's also a specially commissioned essay for eachsubject area by an expert, writer or cultural commentator, inspired by the contents of theexhibition-absorbing, insightful and unexpected contributions from Steve Backshall,the Reverend Richard Coles, Owen Davies, Julia Eccleshare, Roger Highfield, SteveKloves, Lucy Mangan, Anna Pavord and Tim Peake, who offer a personal perspective ontheir magical theme.

Readers will be able to pore over ancient spell books, amazing illuminated scrolls thatreveal the secret of the Elixir of Life, vials of dragon's blood, mandrake roots, paintedcentaurs and a genuine witch's broomstick, in a book that shows J.K. Rowling'smagical inventions alongside their cultural and historical forebears.

This is the ultimate gift for Harry Potter fans, curious minds, big imaginations,bibliophiles and readers around the world who missed out on the chance to see theexhibition in person.
