After sharing the Harry Potter and the Sorcerer’s Stone Illustrated Edition cover yesterday, one of our readers pointed us to photos that reveal the inside of the book.
Several photos posted on Imgur reveal the inside of the Sorcerer’s Stone Illustrated Edition, which hits bookstore shelves in October. The photos were uploaded by “SteampunkBrit,” who received this sample version from “an Aunt that works in the industry.”
While Scholastic and Bloomsbury have released some of the illustrations already, this is the first time we’re seeing how they’ll look when they’re combined with author J.K. Rowling’s writing. The “Preview” text at the top right of the not-final cover suggests this sample was sent out to members of the publishing world to create some early buzz.
As you can see in the photos below, in some cases, illustrations and Rowling’s words share pages, with the text broken into two columns per page. Combined with what appears to be a nice amount of spacing in between each line and the columns, reading the Illustrated Editions will be a wonderful experience:
Some pages without illustrations have been dressed with small additions like splotches of paint:
Some areas of the book have two pages that are simply one giant illustration. This appears to be a drawing of Hagrid’s Hut:
The Sorcerer’s Stone/Philosopher’s Stone Illustrated Edition hits bookstores on October 6 worldwide. One book in the Harry Potter series will be published each year. Pre-order now!
We’re looking forward to re-reading each Harry Potter book when its Illustrated Edition is published. It’ll be fun to read Rowling’s story with the help of gorgeous illustrations, and we suspect it’ll feel like reading the books for the first time.
…And we can’t wait to see how huge the later books are.
Thanks to Ardit for pointing us to the photos on Imgur!
