Harry Potter and the Hype of Ages

Security on Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows isn’t being taken lightly. Printing plants hired extra guards, the printed books are kept in locked boxes, but nothing beats this:

Bloomsbury refused to send the manuscript to Scholastic electronically because it feared that it would be intercepted. Instead, Mark Seidenfeld, the American publisher’s lawyer, travelled to Britain to pick it up and, on his return journey, protected it from prying eyes by sitting on it.

Sounds like a lousy way to spent a transatlantic flight…

The Potterdämmerung approaches!
