Harry Potter manuscript going on tour
Now the story that started it all is back in the spotlight, with part of the original manuscript of Harry Potter and the Philosopher’s Stone being shown at British Library.
According to Jamie Andrews, head of English and Drama at the library, “Writing Britain celebrates the incredible collection of great literary works held at the British Library, spanning more than 1,000 years to the present day. These rare and unique collections will help give a fascinating and new insight into the creative thinking behind iconic British novels, poems, illustrations and more.”
Other works in the show include JRR Tolkien’s artwork for The Hobbit and the original manuscript of The Strange Case Of Dr. Jekyll And Mr Hyde by Robert Louis Stevenson.
