In 2007 we all read the final pages of Harry Potter and the Death Hallows thinking it would be the last time we’d hear from J.K. Rowling’s glorious Wizarding World.
Little did we know we’d then get the Fantastic Beasts series, an award-winning play and two theme parks!
One of the other specialties was the introduction of Pottermore, which gave us further insight into the Wizarding World and its characters, as well as the A History of Magic exhibition in the UK.
Now, Audible has revealed Harry Potter: A History of Magic from Pottermore Publishing will be added to its library, an audiobook version of the popular exhibition!
The A History of Magic exhibition unveils “rare books, manuscripts and magical objects from the British Library’s collection, capturing the traditions of folklore and magic which are at the heart of the Harry Potter stories. Marvel at original drafts and drawings by J.K. Rowling and illustrator Jim Kay, both on display for the first time.”
Attendees can see the “gargantuan 16th-century Ripley Scroll that explains how to create a Philosopher’s Stone. Gaze at Sirius in the night sky as imagined by medieval astronomers. Encounter hand-coloured pictures of dragons, unicorns and a phoenix rising from the flames.”
If this doesn’t sounds exciting enough, the book will be narrated by Natalie Dormer from Game of Thrones!
"I’ve always adored the Harry Potter books, but it wasn’t until I started speaking with the British Library’s curators – hearing about the various myths, legends, and cultures that have helped shape the Wizarding World – that I really began to appreciate the richness and depth of J. K. Rowling’s writing,” Natalie stated in a release.
“There are so many wonderful details to explore and A History of Magic unearths some remarkable gems of information that are sure to have listeners awestruck. It’s been fun to join the Wizarding World family.”
The audiobook will be released October 4, 2018, with pre-orders currently being accepted!
