Harry Potter: A History of Magic will display books, manuscripts and magical objects from the British library collection that explore subjects taught in Hogwarts. Besides that, it will display never shown before original drafts and drawings by J. K. Rowling and the illustrator of the series, Jim Kay.
Final design of the Astronomy room.
The images revealed by Pottermore are from the design company, Easy Tiger, responsable for creating the layout of the exhibition. According to the company’s director, Bren Lardner, the goal of the exhibition is to preserve the feeling of a library, but a special one, magical, and make poeple forget the outside world when creating a connection between the British Library, Harry Potter and magic.
Original conceptual art of the Herbology room.
The room designs are very like the original concept. The Astronomy room will appear to be circular, with telescopes and curtains draped from the ceiling as a reminder of the Astronomy Tower. The Divination room will be full of flying cups and a collection of crystal balls, meanwhile, the Herbology room will remind us of a greenhouse, with plants everywhere. The rooms include information boards with the history, and even if special effects like smoke and incense are forbidden they might damage to the collection, they promise that the exhibition will be a magical experience Harry Potter fans.
