I’m kind of obsessed with the new Harry Potter illustrations by Jim Kay

You guys may or may not be aware that JIM KAY (illustrator of A Monster Calls by Patrick Ness) will be illustrating Harry Potter and the Sorcerer’s Stone (Philosopher’s Stone in the UK), which will be coming out in October of this year! As a HUGE Potterhead, I’m obviously very excited about this, both because I always want more of this world and because I love Jim Kay’s illustrations. I think his dark, strange, and unique illustrations will be absolutely perfect  Today, Scholastic released four images by Jim Kay (of Draco, Hermione, Ron, and Hagrid!). My favorite has got to be Draco (Draco is one of my favorite characters), but I also really love Hermione’s illustration (if you zoom in you can see all kind of cool engravings in the door – Lupin, Riddle, Snape). I do not own any of the images; they are available for download in the Scholastic Media Room.

  1. These are beautiful! I love how they don’t look anything like the movie cast. I began reading the books right around the time the first movies came out, so I’ve always had the actors in my head as I read (beyond the little sketches in the books, of course). These are different but still awesome. I love Hermione’s confidence and curls. 🙂

  2. Now this goes and confuses everything again. LOL. I’ve been wanting to get a new HP set for AGES and I had it down to a full set of the original Bloomsbury adult covers, OR the new children’s set by Bloomsbury by Jonny Duddle. I originally wanted the Hogwarts castle set, but it’s US scholastic, and it’s sorcerer’s stone instead of philosopher’s stone and I can’t deal with that. Le Sigh. R x
