Re: [BKARTS] J.K. ROWLING'S HANDMADE BOOK



Dear Diana and fellow listers
 
The binding of 'The Tales of Beedle the Bard' was commissioned from Hamilton and Inches, who are better known as silversmiths. There's a full description in the catalogue of the Sotheby's sale, and a press release available on their homepage at www.sothebys.com
 
Best wishes
 
Nancy Campbell
