The new Harry Potter covers have been unveiled one by one over the past few weeks. On Saturday we saw Goblet of Fire’s cover. On Thursday Prisoner of Azkaban’s was released. Chamber of Secrets’ and Sorcerer Stone’s debuted earlier this year.
Each of the covers were designed by Kazu Kibuishi and will hit book store shelves on August 27. Only the paperback versions will be modified. Mary GrandPre’s artwork will remain on the hardbacks.
We are still waiting for Half-Blood Prince’s and Deathly Hallows‘ covers. In addition, Scholastic will release new art on the box set’s container.
The new covers are timed to celebrate the 15-year anniversary of Harry Potter and the Sorcerer’s Stone (first published in September 1998).
Scholastic says there are more than 150 million Harry Potter books in print in the United States alone, and the series still hits bestseller lists regularly. The seven Harry Potter books are published in over 200 territories in 74 languages and have sold more than 450 million copies worldwide.
