Fantastic Beasts and Where to Find Them

fb-cover-2I understand that J K Rowling quickly assembled the book we know as Fantastic Beasts and Where to Find Them as a generous way of raising funds for Comic Relief. It was initially¬†a relatively modest book but with the addition of Olivia Lomenech Gill’s illustrations it has made the most wonderful transformation. She was an inspired choice on Bloomsbury’s part, and the result is a glorious collection of etchings, charcoal drawings, watercolours – and a rather special design by Stephanie Amster of Bloomsbury. Look out for Olivia on BBC’s Countryfile on Sunday 5th November where you may find out more about how these illustrations were produced.
