Harry Potter Illustrated Edition Cover Reveal


Our favorite wizard is a back with a bang and this time in flying vibrant colors. The illustrated version of Harry Potter and the Sorcerer's Stone and Harry Potter and the Philosopher's Stone will have a publication date of October 6, 2015. The illustrated editions will be published, one title for each year, by Scholastic and Bloomsbury. It's crazy how this is the first time where the US and the UK editions will share the same cover image. Make sure you save up your Galleons to purchase these illustrated beauties! You might as well collect them all!

Besides the gorgeous illustrations by Jim Kay, "the hardback edition will include a ribbon marker, head and tail bands, illustrated endpapers and color artwork on every spread." The book will include around 100 illustrations. Information was taken from a Bloomsbury e-mail blast and from Scholastic.

Also, check out this amazing image by Jim Kay of Flourish & Botts. I love this illustration. You can find this image on the Bloomsbury UK catalog. Images are from Bloomsbury UK.

The magic continues because Harry Potter lives on forever! Do you currently own multiple editions of any of the Harry Potter books? If so, which ones do you own?
