In case you’d missed the news last year, a new edition of the series is being published by Bloomsbury UK and Scholastic, illustrated by Jim Kay. There are full-color illustrations throughout, and the books are in a larger hardcover format that lets the artwork really shine. There are spot illustrations, full-page spreads, and page decorations throughout the entire book, and it’s really fun to see a new interpretation of the characters.
The new cover is shown above: Harry and the Weasleys riding in the flying car to The Burrow. There are a few more images available at Pottermore.com, including a phoenix, a portrait of Hagrid, and some mandrakes. It’s just a tiny foretaste of what’s to come, but if you’re a Harry Potter fan then you’ll want to add this one to your shelf for sure!
