Friday Fronts - Harry Potter

The Harry Potter books are getting a makeover for their 15th anniversary!

I've always inherently trusted Scholastic with the Harry Potter covers; they were smart enough not to release movie covers and to stick to their roots when the movies came out. The original covers and inside artwork are gorgeous.

This proves to me that they know what they're doing. These are beautiful and new, yes, but they also capture the same kind of magical world that Harry lives in while simultaneously paying tribute to the original covers. And I love them for it.

What do you guys think?


  1. I absolutely love the new cover. I think it's very true to the series and gorgeously designed. The coloring, the image itself, all of it.

  2. Agreed! I really love the new cover and I can't wait to see the rest. Like you said, this cover pays homage to the originals in an artful way while still being fresh. I'd definitely buy a new copy with this cover!

  3. I was ready to rant, rave, & explode with dislike at the idea of changing the covers...but yes, please! LOVE IT!

  4. I think this cover captures the essence of the feeling both Harry and readers experience when they travel through the wizarding world for the first time. I originally didn't want to see the covers change, but this makeover is fabulous.

  5. LOVE. Not *more* than the original covers, but just as much, in their own way. :)
