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!


kibuishi_kazuWhen 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!?

  1. Oh my goodness. That pretty much makes my ENTIRE week. It completely encapsulates EVERY magical feeling I get while reading the book or watching the movie. I’m new to Kazu’s work, and I’m totally ashamed by that..that cover is BREATHTAKING.
