Harry Potter cover reveal

Who saw the gorgeous new Harry Potter and the Chamber of Secrets cover unveiling at BEA this morning? If you did, I am ridiculously jealous... and I so want to see your pictures! If I can't be there, I might as well enjoy some virtual eye candy, right?

Amulet author and illustrator, Kazu Kibuishi, was asked to re-imagine the world of Harry Potter for the 15th anniversary of the US publishing of the series.

For those of you who haven't seen it yet.... below is the cover design by Kazu Kibuishi unveiled today (Thursday, 5/30/13) at BookExpo America in NYC.

Personally, I will always cherish the art by Mary GrandPre because that is what I grew up with and saw in my head (still do, actually!) while reading the series. Call me nostalgic. I absolutely plan on getting this set though because I love the series and would love to have these beauties join my collection.... I've got the paperback boxed set, a few mismatched paperbacks and hardbacks, and even a few alternate covers that were published. My love for Harry Potter runs deep.

So, what do you think? Love or hate the covers?... Buy or just admire in the shops?

  1. I agree that the original Covers that I grew up with and read through will be the ones I always think of, but that is a beautiful cover!
