Potterheads were ecstatic over Scholastic’s announcement last month that it will be publishing new Harry Potter book covers this September. Sure, the original covers will always have a place in our Gryffindor hearts but, let’s be honest, they weren’t great.
Graphic novelist Kazu Kibuishi will create new art for all 7 books in the series—a project Kibuishi did not take on lightly, “I wanted to pay tribute to the series itself and to classic literature. I wanted to take those two things and fuse them together. In a way, the first Harry Potter cover should feel like Dickens.” As a huge Harry Potter fan, I love that sentiment.
And sometimes it’s the fans who come up with the best concept art and graphic prints for the Harry Potter series. Take a look at some of the coolest Harry Potter prints fandom has to offer!
