In case you were wondering (I know I missed it) what became of J.K. Rowling’s book-within-a-book, The Tales of Beedle the Bard, the handwritten, hand-illustrated, leather-bound book that sold by auction at Sotheby’s, the multi-million dollar ($4 million to be exact) book– it is available for viewing by its new owner: Amazon. Follow the link and you can read all 5 of the tales and see images of the book.
Rowling apparently made 7 copies, gave six away, and, well, you know who has the seventh.
Proceeds went to The Children’s Voice.
I see it as a win-win. But what do you think? Was this a good deal? Should Amazon scan the pages and sell them to the public?
