I picked up two book marks and one postcard from the Harry Potter exhibition last week. I really loved the Astronomy room, if I never went into Publishing, Astronomy would have been my second career! I find space so fascinating! Out of interest, what would be your career, if you weren't in the job you are today? ☺️

I went to the British Library's Harry Potter exhibition on Friday evening. We're not allowed to take photos (unfortunately) so this is one of the house banners in the entrance room.
I really liked the detail the designers put into it, from the fortune telling table (in my future, I'm going to succeed) to the potion making area... There was also an array of information from olden times, along with drafts from J.K.Rowling and large paintings from Jim Kay. 
My favourite part was when they forgot we were all there and turned the lights off. Even though the stars in the Divernation room were also turned off so I couldn't stargaze, it was like being a kid locked in a toy store overnight- but better because it was Hogwarts.

Only go to the gift shop if you're prepared to spend money though. I met a Niffler there who just had to come home with me!

King Nascien at sea with his family and retinue, from a manuscript of Arthurian romances made in northern France c. 1316 (British Library MS Add. 10292, f. 61). Nascien was said to have come to Britain with Joseph of Arimathea not long after the death of Christ, and to have helped establish Christianity on the island. Nascien lived an exceptionally long time – many hundreds of years – as a hermit, and in King Arthur's time offered warnings and advice to the Knights of the Round Table.β €

Actual towers of books at the British Library today. πŸ“š
I love this place - I worked from here for a few months when I first moved to London, and today I took my 3-year-old to check out the permanent exhibition they have there. We saw Gutenberg bibles, Jane Austen manuscripts, the Lindisfarne Gospels, and a host of other treasures.
Needless to say, my daughter was mainly interested in where her next babyccino was coming from, and exactly how many cupcakes we'd be buying on the way home. πŸ˜‚

Beautiful #botanical drawing from a collection of watercolour and gouache illustrations by Gerardo Cibo. He copied plants in the Roman states, and started collecting plants in the early #16thcentury. Here is an example Asplenium hemonites, a type of #fern, with a #ruin underneath. British Library, Add MS 22333

Book inspired birthday gift! I received this mini β€˜drink me’ bottle of sparkling wine from my aunt after her visit to the British Library. Not sure how this is going to taste but the bottle is cute anyway.

I bestiari sono una particolare categoria di libri che raccoglievano brevi descrizioni di animali (reali e immaginari). In questo manoscritto del XIII secolo Γ¨ raffigurato un asino selvatico asiatico.

"When in doubt, go to the library." You can't take photos in the actual exhibit, but the History of Magic experience is still incredibly well done (and had me in full Harry Potter Nerd Mode). #blharrypotter #britishlibrary #historyofmagic #london #ravenclawpride

If you are a fan of Harry Potter & the brilliant author  J K Rowling the exhibition @britishlibrary is worth a visit. You are not allowed to take photos inside the exhibition but it allows you to concentrate and enjoy all the items on display which include items belonging to  J K Rowling herself.  The exhibition has been well presented and each different  theme is decorated so well with some interaction, my favourite being the potions room πŸ‘©πŸ»β€πŸ”¬πŸ‘©πŸ»β€πŸ”¬πŸ‘©πŸ»β€πŸ”¬. If you can pop in for a visit but well worth pre booking. #harrypotter #exhibition #harrypotterexhibition  #jkrowling #art #magic #potions #charms #alchemy #astronomy #books #reading #amazing #britishlibrary #london #magicalcreatures  #historyofmagic #exhibition #harrypotterexhibition
