New ‘Harry Potter and the Goblet of Fire’ Paperback Cover

Scholastic has released Harry Potter and the Goblet of Fire’s new paperback cover, and it features Harry versus the Hungarian Horntail.

The cover was designed by Kazu Kibuishi. Harry Potter and the Goblet of Fire was originally published July 8, 2000. It was the first time a Harry Potter book was published in the United States and United Kingdom on the same day.

Mary GrandPre’s original cover for the United States version of the fourth Harry Potter book featured Harry in front of the Goblet of Fire. But the British Bloomsbury version by Giles Greenfield, also depicts the First Task of the Triwizard Championship, with Harry on his Firebolt being chased by a Hungarian Horntail. Whose depiction looks better?

Prisoner of Azkaban’s cover was released on Thursday and depicted Harry sending a Patronus at dementors on the Black Lake. Chamber of Secretsshows Harry and Ron arriving at The Burrow. Sorcerer’s Stone’s depicts Harry and Hagrid arriving at Diagon Alley.

The new Harry Potter book covers will hit store shelves on August 27 in the United States. The hardback copies of the Harry Potter books will not receive the new designs.

Scholastic will be pushing out the remaining new Harry Potter covers over the next few weeks. We have three left to go, plus the artwork for the box set’s case.

So far I think the Chamber of Secrets cover is my favorite! What’s yours? Let us know in the comments below!

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?)
