‘Harry Potter’ Gets a New Cover for Fifteenth Anniversary

While they are certainly not as offensive as the recent covers for The Bell Jar and Anne of Green Gables, the new covers for the Harry Potter series will likely cause an uproar among Potterheads. Mary GrandPré’s original cover art for the novels is getting shelved (see what I did?!) in favor for new artwork by Kazu Kibuishi. A box set will be available in September in honor of Harry Potter and the Sorcerer’s Stone‘s fifteenth anniversary, which means you’re going to have to buy new copies for your library. Now if you’ll excuse me, I’ll be in the next room freaking out that Harry Potter has now been around for fifteen years.
