Drool Over The Final Harry Potter Anniversary Cover by Kazu Kibuishi, Plus Box Set Designs


I love Mary GrandPré‘s original covers for the Scholastic versions of the Harry Potter books, but I also love dragons, so I’m a big fan of the final cover in Scholastic’s Kazu Kibuishi illustrated Harry Potter 15th anniversary set. Of course, the cover is also gorgeously illustrated with amazing composition and lighting, so that might be a bigger draw than the dragon for some of you. The Harry Potter and The Deathly Hallows cover was revealed on July 31 in the New York City Scholastic Store, and will be available in paperback  individually and as part of a box set with Kibuishi’s other illustrated covers. Check out the tempting box set design, with even more of Kibuishi’s artwork, after the jump. If I keep telling myself that my hardcovers are falling apart, I can magically justify new copies, right?

    Do we know if Mary GrandPre’s images that appear at the beginning of each chapter appear in these anniversary editions?

    Her art feels like a warm blanket wrapped around my shoulders on a snowy day.

    All of my copies are so ragged, I didn’t really take care of books as a kid and many rereadings have left them all in tatters, especially Prisoner of Azkaban, so this boxset is a must have. Can you say Merry Christmas to me?

  • Rachel Banzhaf

    I want a movie set with beautifully illustrated covers like that.

  • Fiona

    I would say yes because under ‘illustrator’ both Mary GrandPre and Kibuishi are listed. so I would assume so.

  • Shoshana B

    And I just realized that I only have hardcovers of the books. Merry Christmas, indeed.
