Exclusive Reveal: Book 3 & 4 Chapter Illustrations

One of the things I loved most about the Harry Potter books I read growing up was the little illustrations at the head of each chapter. They were my only visual link to the characters and world of Harry Potter that I was desperate to be a part of (this was long before the movies, of course).
