Bloomsbury Unveils New ‘Harry Potter’ Adult Edition Covers

newpottercovers

Hoping to entice a new generation of adult readers, Bloomsbury and J.K. Rowling announced today that the Harry Potter books will be re-published in paperback format with some new, and very different, covers.

The covers take on a modern and vibrant look with a sketch pertaining to an element within each book’s story. The first three covers for Harry Potter and the Philosopher’s Stone, Harry Potter and the Chamber of Secrets, and Harry Potter and the Prisoner of Azkaban were unveiled today.

J.K. Rowling’s official Facebook page noted that the first three books with new covers will be available from July 18, 2013, followed by the next two on August 15, 2013, and the final two on September 26, 2013.

The jackets are illustrated by Andrew Davidson and “feature his beautiful woodcut style.”

While the modern look will certainly attract some new readers who may have been hesitant to jump on the Potter bandwagon in the past, I don’t think current fans will gain anything from purchasing these new editions. (Unless you really like the covers!)

Scholastic is in the midst of re-releasing the Harry Potter paperbacks with new covers as well. So far the new covers for Sorcerer’s Stone and Chamber of Secrets have been unveiled. The Prisoner of Azkaban cover was revealed last night. Check it out here!

New Scholastic ‘Prisoner of Azkaban’ Paperback Cover Unveiled at LeakyCon

The new Scholastic cover for the paperback version of Harry Potter and the Prisoner of Azkaban was set to be released during the opening ceremonies of LeakyCon, an annual Harry Potter convention, held this year in Portland, Oregon.

That ceremony has just taken place and  Cheryl Klein, Scholastic’s Content Editor for the Harry Potter book series, removed the cover and exposed the image you see below:

The image was drawn by talented artist Kazu Kibuishi, who also revealed his Sorcerer’s Stone and Chamber of Secrets covers earlier this year.

What do you think of the new cover celebrating the 15th Anniversary of Scholastic’s original release of Sorcerer’s Stone? This edition will go on sale August 27, 2013.

New ‘Harry Potter and the Chamber of Secrets’ Cover Revealed!

At Book Expo America yesterday, Scholastic unveiled the new Harry Potter and the Chamber of Secrets cover designed by Kazu Kibuishi.

The new Harry Potter cover can be seen below in full high-res.

This cover depicts Harry and Ron arriving at The Burrow via their flying Ford Anglia. It’s a gorgeous depiction of the Burrow and I can’t wait to purchase yet another set of HP Books! (How many more can a girl get before she’s had enough?)
