Each title will revolve around a specific magic class that Harry, Hermione and Ron took while at Hogwarts — such as Charms, Defense Against the Dark Arts and Care of Magical Creatures.

The e-books have been adapted from companion books that accompanied the exhibition “Harry Potter: A History of Magic”, on show from October 2017 to February 2018 at the British Library.

The new book collection will also feature J.K. Rowling’s manuscript pages, notes and sketches. It has been illustrated by London-based artist Rohan Daniel Eason.
