J.K. Rowling’s popular Harry Potter series captivated millions from hardcover to film and now the iconic fantasy novel is giving diehard fans something new to get all crazed over.
In celebration of the first US edition novel release 20 years ago, brand spanking new front cover book designs have been released of the entire series from first book The Philosopher’s Stone to the last book The Deathly Hallows.
It might not sound like much, but the newly designed book covers have a special surprise for those who purchase the entire 20th anniversary series made up of seven novals altogether. Put all them all together to reveal one sparling image.
The seven series 20th anniversary edition was designed by the famous American illustrator Brian Selznick. The Harry Potter fan himself couldn’t have been happier to take charge of the renewed book series.
An Independent article quoted Selznick saying, “’I’m a big Harry Potter fan and it is an incredible honour to illustrate J.K. Rowling’s iconic series,’ Selznick previously said. I am thrilled to play a part in this exciting 20th anniversary celebration and look forward to meeting Harry Potter fans and readers across the country’.”
We’re sure that Selznick will be meeting Harry Potter fans both young and grown. It’s incredible how childhood fans of the novel have grown but yet their love for the children’s book hasn’t wavered in the slightest.
New kid fans of the mystical series are springing up as well. We guess it’s just the magical powers of Harry Potter, or should we say the creative powers of J.K. Rowling — she’s truly the one who deserves all the credit.
For those who can’t get enough of the Harry Potter franchise, keep your eyes peeled for the release of Fantastic Beasts: The Crimes of Grindelwald starring Jude Law as a young Dumbledore.
The film is set to hit theaters in November of 2018 as the sequel to the Fantastic Beasts and Where to Find Them movie — a prequel to the Harry Potter series, which is also written by J.K. Rowling. Fun fact, Fantastic Beasts and Where to Find Them is J.K. Rowling’s first screenwriting film production.
