Awesome book cover Friday: Harry Potter and the Sorcerer’s Stone

Scholastic is dolling up all seven of J.K. Rowling’s Harry Potter books with new, 15th-anniversary covers.

The first is coming for Harry Potter and the Sorcerer’s Stone in September. The redesigns were done by Kazu Kibuishi, a graphic novelist known for his Amulet series.

The publisher has revealed the cover for Sorcerer’s Stone. What do you think? I love the sleeker, more color-rich, more emotionally encapsulating take over the original.

    I love it! I’ll always, always favor the originals, but I love collecting different versions of the books– the international ones are so different, too! It’s just another amazing portrayal of a series that has totally won my heart.

    I love the covers and that the artist took inspiration from the original SS cover. Do I need another set of Harry Potter books? No. But I think in September this will be on my To Buy list.

Tell me something!
