All new Harry Potter Covers revealed!

All the Harry Potter Book covers have been revealed.  I like them.. of course I love the originals, but these are beautiful too.  Kazu Kibuishi (the illustrator) says he really enjoyed the project but thinks he had an easier job then the original illustrator Grandpre's drawings.  She had nothing to go on but the stories and he had so much more to use for inspiration.  Now the back of the covers will be revealed, so for the Sorcerer's Stone is the only one we have seen. The spines also make a neat picture when put together.   Enjoy!  Keep a look out for the back covers.

  1. I love the new covers because they're exactly how I envisioned the books but the old covers are still a little better :)

  4. I love these! They kind of make me want to buy the books all over again, but I'm rather attached to the original covers, too.

  5. Great series - my favourite could change daily, but right now I'll go with Prisoner of Azkaban. Nice work on the 2013 Reading challenge - 12 books away from being able to quote Livin' on a Prayer!
