Now that J.K. Rowling isn't a billionaire anymore, she's got to get her net worth back up. This October will see the release of Harry Potter: A History of Magic and Harry Potter – A Journey Through A History of Magic. The two new Harry Potter books are world-expanding encyclopedic collections that will be published in conjunction with a British Library exhibition called "A History of Magic."

Both will include unseen sketches and manuscript pages from Rowling, magical illustrations from Jim Kay (Pottermore illustrator, as well as the man behind the illustrated editions of the Potter novels), and artifacts from the archives at the library.

Harry Potter: A History of Magic – The Book of the Exhibition gives a deeper look at the curriculum at Hogwarts School of Witchcraft and Wizardry, including Herbology, Astronomy, and Care of Magical Creatures. Harry Potter – A Journey Through A History of Magic will give a lesson on the mystical subjects of unicorns, alchemy, and ancient witchcraft.

A History of Magic celebrates the 20th anniversary of the publication of the first Harry Potter book, Harry Potter and the Sorcerer's Stone, and the British Library exhibition will be held from October 2017 to February 2018.

The new books will be released October 21, 2017. No date for a film-adaptation has been released, but we're expecting one soon.
