The Tales of Beedle the Bard

J.K. Rowling's handwritten book: The Tales of Beedle the Bard, will be auctioned in December at Sotheby's to raise money for Rowling's charity of choice, The Children's Voice. Rowling has handwritten 7 copies of the book, 1 set to be auctioned, the other 6 to be given as gifts to those who have been most integral in her writing of the Harry Potter series. Each book is bound in leather with semi-precious stones adorning it and each will have its own special dedication based on who it will be going to.

All I can say is, "Can somebody spot me 50,000 pounds?"

Well, I suppose it makes more sense than her other charity auctions, those ones where you could've paid bucco-bucks to get a jumble of words that appeared in the next book. At least with this one you get something still valuable after a year.

Silly people! Cool drawings, tho.

I think this is an amazing idea. Those books will be invaluable. I just hope she actually put some time into researching the archival properties of the paper, ink, etc. Otherwise its all a waste.
