You probably already know that tomorrow, J. K. Rowling’s The Tales of Beedle the Bard will finally be available to the public. But you might not know that one of the original seven copies of the book — handwritten and illustrated by Rowling herself — will be on display at the New York Public Library for the next month.

This morning, Karen and I went to see the unveiling of the book. Check it out:
