Read all about it! Read all about it! There's a new version of the book Harry Potter and the Sorcerer's Stone being published and it is to be an illustrated edition with images by artist Jim Kay.
Apparently, all of the Harry Potter books will be re-released as illustrated books and author J.K. Rowling personally picked Kay to create the artwork.
Remember Harry’s early years when he resided with his not-very-nice aunt and uncle and horrible cousin Dudley? When Harry slept in a small closet under the stairs…
I can hardly wait to see Kay's vision of Harry Potter's world. To keep you going, here are a few of the pictures from the book from Amazon, starting with the exterior of Hogwarts Castle:
Followed by Draco Malfoy, Hagrid and Hermione Granger. I think the cover is exciting but my favorite image is the one of Hermione, in part because of the handsome antique door behind her but also because she manages to look like Hermione without looking like Emma Watson. Which picture is your favorite?
Obviously, I haven't seen the new book yet but I know without seeing it that it will make a great gift for someone you want to introduce to the Harry Potter series. Since I am excited about it, I also am certain that it will be a top-rated gift idea for a Harry Potter geek. Does anyone you know fit that bill?
You can learn more about the book on Amazon by clicking here. You can also pre-order the book and if you choose to do so, you will be protected by Amazon's pre-order price guarantee. The book's release date is October 6, 2015. I figure that it might be one of the most exciting book releases of the year.
