gypsibooks #FraudAlert #FORGERYALERT this #HarryPotter and the #halfbloodprince was not signed by #jkrowling. There are several issues with the #signature but one of the easiest to spot is the "J"--it's just made all wrong.
Remember, a #certificateofauthenticity and a convincing seller don't make a #JoRowling signature real--research and asking a lot of questions can tho.
If you have any questions, just ask or check out www.facebook.com/gypsibooks :) #Hogwarts #harrypotternerd #HarryPotterCollector #HarryPotterCollection #potterforlife #PotterFan #PotterNut #potterhead #potterforlife #HarryPotterLibrary #harrypotterforever #Slytherin #Gryffendor #Hufflepuff #Ravenclaw #BookNerd #bookcollector #buyerbeware

  •   apotteraday Apart from the "J", this is quite scarily genuine-looking. 4d
  •   gypsibooks @apotteraday yeah, it's one of the "better" I've spotted. :( another give away tho is that this is a U.S. Half blood prince, and finding an authentically signed one is quite rare. So just because of the book, I was suspicious. 4d
  •   gypsibooks @apotteraday no hesitation marks, so lots of practice. Makes me wonder what else this "artist" has signed. 4d

gypsibooks #FraudAlert #FORGERYALERT This #Bloomsbury #HarryPotter and the #DeathlyHallows (eBay item #271955819250, was not signed by #jkrowling; there are many issues with this signature but the two easiest tells are the super light writing and that "Rowling" looks to be misspelled, resembling "Roly" with weird spacing between the letters. Remember when by any #JoRowling #signature to do your research and ask questions. :) If you'd like more information, don't hesitate to ask me OR visit me at www.facebook.com/Gypsibooks

gypsibooks My lovely #PrisonerOfAzkaban Advanced Reader Copy produced by scholastic in 1999.
I get a lot of questions about the lack of artwork on this ARC. My best answer is: Since Grandpre likes to base her illustrations off moments in the book, she had to carefully read the book and then decide which moment to illustrate for the cover. And, given the timeline of US HP publications (both #ChamberOfSecrets and #Azkaban were published in '99) I would bet that the artwork for this book wasn't finished at the time the ARC had to be rolled out to press and early readers for feedback.

  •   thepottercollector You are correct! When Prisoner of Azkaban was released in the United Kingdom, there was a HUGE demand for the book in the States (the books were released simultaneously starting with Goblet of Fire). Scholastic was pressured to bump up the release of the third book a LOT earlier than originally planned. And, so, the artwork as you stated, was not finished yet! 😀 5d

gypsibooks Here is my #ChamberOfSecrets US Advanced Reader Copy (ARC) produced by scholastic in 1999 next to its #Bloomsbury counterpart from the previous year. I just love proof copies, because of their place in the publishing history. #HarryPotter #RareBooks #Ravenclaw #Gryffendor #Slytherin #Hufflepuff #Hogwarts #HarryPotterBooks #harrypotterlover #harrypotterproof #HarryPotterLibrary #PotterFan #PotterNut #potterhead #potterforlife #jkrowling #JoRowling #read #reading #wizardsrule #WizardingWorld #HarryPotterStudios #harrypotterforever 7d

gypsibooks To kick off my Proof Series, I decided to start off with my lovely #Bloomsbury #ChamberOfSecrets proof from 1998. It's one of only 250 produced.
It's a really lovely copy given its age and the fact that when this cool little book was produced, #jkrowling wasn't The JK Rowling and many were pitched and/or very torn up. I owned a copy once that had red crayon all through out and on the wraps. #HarryPotter #HarryPotterBooks #harrypotterlover #HarryPotterBook #harrypotterproof #JoRowling #Slytherin #Hogwarts #PotterFan #PotterNut #potterhead #potterforlife #Hufflepuff #Gryffendor #RareBook #RareBooks #Ravenclaw
