Will you be picking up the newest paperbacks or sticking to the original book covers?
The artist, whose stunning Harry Potter and the Philosopher’s Stone art has been well received, has revealed his latest addition to the series.
Scholastic announced earlier in the year that the company was going to release brand new editions of the entire Harry Potter saga that are poised to hit the store shelves in August. The company has been generating significant buzz surrounding the cover art created by award winning artist Kazu Kibuishi. Today at Book Expo America, the artist and Ellie Berger, President of Scholastic Trade Publishing, Arthur A. Levine unveiled the new cover art.
The new cover for Harry Potter and the Chamber of Secrets features the flying car that Harry and Ron rode to Hogwarts. In the background is the Weasley family home and many people are considering this art to be the best ever done for the franchise. Subsequent cover art will be revealed during the next few months for the remainder of the books.
As per their promise, after releasing the first few chapters as well as a batch of brand new Chamber of Secrets content to Slytherins – who took the House Cup this year – Pottermore has officially opened this brand-new section of the site to everyone.
In the past twenty-four hours Slytherins everywhere have enjoyed new mini-games within the chapters, incredibly detailed illustrations, and appropriately read up on some interesting material about the Malfoy family.
