Boston Preview I: Original "Hogwarts" Illustration
All this week on the blog we'll be highlighting items on offer at the upcoming Boston International Antiquarian Book Fair, which runs Friday-Sunday, or at the Boston Book, Print & Ephemera Fair, a Saturday-only show. Today, Harry Potter is in the spotlight. At the Boston International Antiquarian Book Fair, California bookseller John Windle will offer this original watercolor illustration of the Hogwarts School of Witchcraft and Wizardry by artist Cliff Wright, made for the British edition of J.K. Rowling's Harry Potter and the Chamber of Secrets (1998). The price is $50,000.
While in Boston this week, don't forget to check out Beyond Words, a major, multi-venue exhibition celebrating manuscript culture.
