(Warning this is way off topic).
The Tales of Beedle the Bard is now available for pre order from Amazon.
Well, the elusive Tales of Beedle the Bard (not Beetle the Bard as many pronounce it) are now available for preorder. Originally the book had only 7 copies made. One that was auctioned off and ultimately purchased by Amazon for 3.98 million. Well now us that don't have a 4 mill in pocket change have an opportunity to purchase a copy.
There are two versions: a Standard and a Collectors edition.
The Standard Version features all five fairy tales from the original The Tales of Beedle the Bard, a new introduction by J.K. Rowling, illustrations reproduced from the original handcrafted book, and commentary on each of the tales by Professor Albus Dumbledore.
The Collector's Edition includes a reproduction of J.K. Rowling's handwritten introduction, as well as 10 additional illustrations not found in the Standard Edition. Opening the cover of the case reveals a velvet bag embroidered with J.K. Rowling's signature, in which sits the piece de resistance: your very own copy of The Tales of Beedle the Bard, complete with metal skull, corners, and clasp; replica gemstones; and emerald ribbon.
