“Harry Potter” Gets New Book Covers For 15th Anniversary
It’s been 15 years since the Harry Potter books first cast a spell on readers, and Scholastic is celebrating the milestone by giving J.K. Rowling’s books a new look.
The publisher revealed the new cover for “Harry Potter and the Sorcerer’s Stone” on Wednesday, the first of seven new covers that will appear on U.S. paperback editions of the books beginning in September to celebrate the 15th anniversary of the publication of the first book in the series.
The art for the new editions was created by artist Kazu Kibuishi, best known for his bestselling graphic novel series “Amulet.” Each of Kibushi’s seven covers depict “a distinct and memorable moment” from that specific book. In the case of “Sorcerer’s Stone,” that moment is young Harry Potter walking with Hagrid down Diagon Alley.
The new versions of the books will be available as a box set in September.
