Harry Potter 15th Anniversary Edition to be Released with New Covers

Harry Potter 15th Anniversary Edition to be Released with New Covers Uncategorized Something tells me Scholastic is looking to bring back the Harry Potter gravy train. The US publisher for the best-selling young-adult series has just announced plans to release a 15th anniversary edition of the Harry Potter series.

The complete series will be reissued both as individual titles as well as a boxed set. The 7 novels will have new covers when they hit store shelves this September. The first cover has already been revealed, and you can see it at right. It's the work of graphic artist Kazu Kibuishi, creator of the graphic novel series Amulet.

“Initially I didn’t want to see it done,” Kibuishi told PW, “because I love the original covers so much. I’m a huge fan. But after thinking about it for a while, I figured if someone were going to do it, I should try it.”

Scholastic also plans to release the first boxed set of the complete Hogwarts Library in November, which includes Quidditch Through the Ages, Fantastic Beasts and Where to Find Them, and The Tales of Beedle the Bard.

5 Comments on Harry Potter 15th Anniversary Edition to be Released with New Covers

  1. Well, as much as I love Harry Potter (and I love it a lot), I tend to agree with your assessment, Nate, that this is Scholastic going back to the Potter gravy train. Not that there’s anything wrong with that, of course. 🙂

  2. IIRC Bloomsbury’s done it multiple times in the UK, so I suppose Scholastic is due. :shrugs:

  3. I like the new cover, but I won’t be repurchasing them.

  4. Eh. It’s nothing more than what made Disney: Periodically re-releasing stuff. Peter Pan is coming to Blu-ray.
