Potter fans, here is an exhibition that will leave you spellbound!

As the 20th anniversary of the release of the first book about Harry and his friends, Harry Potter and the Sorcerer's Stone, draws closer, an exhibition titled Harry Potter: A History of Magic was held at the British Library, London.

The exhibit hopes to take readers on a fascinating journey through the subjects studied at Hogwarts School. 

It includes JK Rowling's artworks, a map of Hogwarts School, the outline for the books and also versions of the rejected books of the author. 

Presenting some glimpses from the exhibition.
