This morning I saw that Scholastic Books is giving Harry Potter
Polyjuice potion a cover makeover for the 15 year anniversary of the series!
My heart fluttered at the idea of new books to collect, but I also was a little skeptical of revamping the original covers because they’re so perfect.
Once I saw the art for Harry Potter and The Sorcerer’s Stone, however, I fell in love. All seven books are getting makeovers by graphic artist Kazu Kibuishi, author and artist of the graphic novel series, Amulet. Kibuishi said, “I wanted it to feel whimsical.”
Whimsical indeed! This first cover is gorgeous, magical and J.K. Rowling-approved. Kibuishi said he was nervous about what she would say, but “When I heard that she enjoyed it, I was happy. Now that she’s happy, I’m going to sail my way to the end of this thing.”
The new versions of the books will be released in September, and I cannot wait to pick up my copies!
I mean seriously, why was I skeptical at all? You can never have too much Harry Potter.
