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.

LEGO Harry Potter!

I recently had the chance to attend my local fair, and guess who was there? The local chapter of LEGO builders!

They had an enormous display that pretty much looked like this:

…And that’s a small corner! It was about 15 feet long and 5 feet wide, and consisted of about a billion pop culture references, including LOTR, Star Wars, Doctor Who, and who can forget our own Harry Potter?

I was able to get a couple of pictures with my phone, and though they’re not very good, I’d still like to share them with you. 🙂

Like I said, they’re not very good pictures, but this is the mouth of Salazar Slytherin in the Chamber of Secrets!

And, of course, our beloved Hogwarts castle.

I was going to get a picture of the Durmstrang ship, but right about then was when my phone died. Sadly, the LEGO version of the ship will forever be shrouded in mystery…

Oh well. Have a Potter-ific day!
