The books will “take you back in time once again to learn about the traditional folklore and magic at the heart of the Harry Potter series.” These eBooks “will also feature notes, manuscripts, and charming sketches as previously seen in Harry Potter: A History of Magic.
Charms and Defence Against the Dark Arts and Potions and Herbology will be published on June 287th.
Here’s the official description for Charms and Defence Against the Dark Arts:
“How to become invisible, to make someone fall in love with you, to transform into another creature: these are all things that people have believed in, yearned for, or feared, throughout history. Spells and charms have captured the imagination for hundreds of years. Warding off evil is also something that has concerned people throughout history. From werewolves to all manner of snakes in the wizarding world, you’d learn how to face a number of strange and frightening forces in Defence Against the Dark Arts classes.
This eBook short examines the colourful characters and curious incidents of the real history of magic, and how they relate to the Hogwarts lesson subjects of Charms and Defence Against the Dark Arts from the Harry Potter stories.”
The books will feature new artwork by Rohan Daniel Eason. They will be available in English, French, Italian, and German.
