Author J.K. Rowling continues to churn out screenplays for the Fantastic Beasts spin-offs. Her scripts, the second of five films Fantastic Beasts: The Crimes of Grindelwald, will be published later on this year. Released the cover of the next book designed by MinaLima.

Of course, nothing in the wizarding world is so simple - like a book cover is just released for fans. No, this cover, created by the graphic designers who've created the wizarding world as know on-screen, is filled with special symbols from what we know of Fantastic Beasts and Where to Find Them as well as the Harry Potter series itself.

Here is a look at the full cover. How many hidden symbols can you find?

By my count, I have about 17 symbols both in gold and black.

Snakes and thestrals decorate the corners of the book at the top, while nifflers (and bowtruckles), Egyptian cats, and the ocean waves fill up the bottom. Gold tongues stick out of the snakes' mouths as the Deatheater's motif is prominently placed in the center.

The title of Fantastic Beasts: The Crimes of Grindelwald includes the three Deathly Hallows: resurrection stone, elder wand, and invisibility cloak.

Underneath the title, it looks like the Philosopher's Stone will come into play as Newt Scamander is caught up in the feud between Dumbledore and Grindelwald. The stone is not a big surprise because it's been confirmed that Dumbledore's friend and creator of the stone Nicolas Flamel will appear in the sequel too. However, dangling from the black art deco spirals is a gold key and a lock with the initials NF on it. Newt is definitely compelled to unlock a discovery on his journey back to Europe.

Peer further down the design and wings of an unknown creature (perhaps a phoenix like Fawkes or is can Grindelwald transform into a dragon?) spread across the Eiffel Tower. And just parallel to the iconic tower are two art deco faces of a woman whose identity might just be the Minister of Magic for the French wizarding world.

Not only is the story venturing to new countries like France, but Newt it bound to come across some other kinds of creatures too. As an Oni from Arcanus Circus lurks underneath the waves at the bottom corners, the Deathly Hallows symbol with the elder wand in the center caps everything off.

Fantastic Beasts: The Crimes of Grindelwald original screenplay by J.K. Rowling will be released on November 16th, 2018.
