Buzz broke out today over the reveal of the 15th anniversary edition of Harry Potter and the Philosopher’s Stone, and I personally couldn’t be happier! You can read all of the details HERE on Galleycat, but my overall investment is this: the artist is none other than Kazu Kibuishi! For anyone who follows the blog, you will know that I am a huge fan of Kazu’s work, and a lover of his Amulet series!
When my boss emailed this around today, I think I stared at it for a good five minutes with a goofy smile plastered on my face. Kazu’s art is a dream to me and he couldn’t have hit this one any further out of the ballpark. Imaginative, stunning and just so beautiful, I am in love with this new cover! Sadly, as far as I know, it is strictly being sold in the US. Thankfully, I live close enough to the border and have no issue driving myself down there to buy them! For anyone not close, Bookfinder.com is your new best friend! I can’t wait to see the rest of the covers.
Oh, and Kazu — you’re the bomb! What do you all think!?
