Scholastic to Release New Harry Potter Book Covers

A new era for Harry Potter fans.

To celebrate the 15th anniversary of Harry Potter series, Scholastic is releasing new Harry Potter book covers by artist Kazu Kibuishi.  You can check them out below.

The original covers, illustrated by Marie GrandPre, usually only focuses on Harry and his friends.  However, Kibuishi’s drawings focusing more on the world around the characters.  GrandPre’s covers will still feature on printed editions, but the new covers will be sold in a special box set starting August 27th.

Kibuishi also redesigned the spines of the books.  When the full set is placed in order, it will reveal an image of Hogwarts at night.

Okay, enough talk.  Let’s see what the new covers are like:

While I’m going to be nostalgic with the old covers, I have to admit the new covers are really awesome.
