Harry Potter books sport new covers for 20th anniversary


If you can believe it, Harry Potter and the Sorcerer's Stone will turn a whopping 20-years-old this September - well, for USA readers at least.

Scholastic today unveiled new covers for J.K. Rowling's Harry Potter series as part of our year-long campaign to celebrate the 20th anniversary of the US publication of Harry Potter and the Sorcerer's Stone-with a live reveal on Good Morning America! When placed side-by-side, the seven new covers make a mural bursting with your favorite characters and other details from the books.

For the 15th anniversary edition of Harry Potter and the Sorcerer's Stone, Scholastic turned to artist Kazu Kibuishi, who had a darker, more detailed take on the covers. "I am thrilled to play a part in this exciting 20th anniversary celebration and look forward to meeting Harry Potter fans and readers across the country".

Police said the pursuit ended at exit 89 on I-95 in CT after troopers used spike strips to flatten the tires on Rowley's Jeep. Rhode Island police had located Rowley driving on I-95 and tried to stop him but he refused to stop.

The Cursed Child is the followup to Rowling's seven-novel series, picking up nineteen years after the conclusion of The Deathly Hallows. Around the 10-year anniversary, Scholastic released new paperback covers designed by Kazu Kibiushi which form a picture of Hogwarts when you buy the box set.

In addition to these new covers (I really hope they also release a poster!), Scholastic will be hosting Potter-related events at bookstores, libraries, schools, and festivals all over the U.S. It will also publish Rowling's screenplay for Fantastic Beasts: The Crimes of Grindelwald and books tied to the New-York Historical Society exhibition, Harry Potter: A History of Magic.

Check out all seven covers below, and let us know your favorite (we're personally loving The Half-Blood Prince's Dumbledore-heavy cover).
