Harry Potter fans, this is for you! Scholastic and Bloomsbury released the cover image of the upcoming fully illustrated edition of Harry Potter and the Sorcerer’s Stone/Harry Potter and the Philosopher’s Stone.
The gorgeous new cover was illustrated by award-winning artist Jim Kay and shows Harry and Hedwig standing on on Platform 9 ¾ next to Hogwarts Express, surrounded by witches and wizards. The train is redesigned and appears dragon-like.
The illustrated edition of the book will be published October 6. There will be one illustrated edition printed each year, so Harry Potter and the Chamber of Secrets should hit stands this time next year.
This same cover will be used for US and UK editions of the Illustrated edition of arry Potter and the Sorcerer’s Stone/Harry Potter and the Philosopher’s Stone. This is the first time that both countries will have the same cover for any of the Harry Potter books.
