Pottermore Publishing is launching a new series of non-fiction Harry Potter e-books on June 27.

The collection will explore "traditional folklore and magic at the heart of the Harry Potter series".

Each title will revolve around a specific magic class that Harry, Hermione and Ron took while at Hogwarts -- such as Charms, Defense Against the Dark Arts and Care of Magical Creatures.

The e-books have been adapted from companion books that accompanied the exhibition "Harry Potter: A History of Magic," on show from October 2017-February 2018 at the British Library.

The new book collection will also feature J.K. Rowling's manuscript pages, notes and sketches. It has been illustrated by London-based artist Rohan Daniel Eason.

The first two books, entitled A Journey Through Charms and Defense Against the Dark Arts and A Journey Through Potions and Herbology, will be released on June 27.

The remaining two --A Journey Through Divination and Astronomy and A Journey Through Care of Magical Creatures -- will be released a few months later.

All four books will be published in English, French, Italian, and German.

They are already available for pre-order on several sites, such as Amazon and Apple.
