When Pottermore went through its gargantuan redesign, much of the information that J.K. Rowling wrote for the site vanished. Now those extra bits of backstory will be turned into a set of eBooks titled Pottermore Presents.
The covers for the series were created by MinaLima, the design duo who created the artwork (and wizarding book covers) for the Potter film series. The set will be released of September 6th, and will only be availably digitally.
Here is what Pottermore has to say about each title:
Hogwarts: An Incomplete and Unreliable Guide dives into the nooks and crannies of the beloved wizarding school itself, unfurling everything from details about the Hogwarts ghosts, to what happens when the Sorting Hat can’t decide on a student’s house.
Short Stories from Hogwarts of Power, Political and Pesky Poltergeists explores the darker roots of the wizarding world. You’ll learn more about the troubles that faced the Ministry of Magic, the horrors of Azkaban prison and enjoy an entirely new original piece of writing by J.K. Rowling on Horace Slughorn.
Finally, in Short Stories from Hogwarts of Heroism, Hardship and Dangerous Hobbies, Pottermore celebrates the colourful staff of Hogwarts. There’s more to discover about Care of Magical Creatures teacher Silvanus Kettleburn, as well as another new piece of writing from J.K. Rowling on Minerva McGonagall, and her involvement in the second wizarding war.
All three eBooks can be pre-ordered now through your favorite digital retailers. Check out the news on Pottermore for more details!
