When Bloomsbury UK announced its upcoming “Harry Potter” publication plans a few months ago, they mentioned that a new version of “Fantastic Beasts and Where to Find Them” would be released in the coming year. Now, more details about the release are available!
In 2016, the annual London Book Fair featured Scholastic and Bloomsbury, US and UK publishers of the “Harry Potter” series; Little Brown, which publishes the UK editions of the “Cormoran Strike” series; and Templar Publishing, showcasing the “Harry Potter” coloring books.
As all “Harry Potter” fans know, there are many people who helped to make our beloved book series a reality. Not just J.K. Rowling herself, or the talented artists who illustrated those original covers, but also editors, publicists, agents, sales reps, and so many others who believed in Harry just as much as we did. We have recently lost one of those remarkable people – Susan Jeffers Casel, who was a copy editor for the US editions of the books.
Scholastic to Release New Editions of “Fantastic Beasts and Where to Find Them” and “Quidditch Through the Ages”
Just in time for “Fantastic Beasts” fever to really get off the ground, Scholastic is releasing new US editions of “Fantastic Beasts and Where to Find Them” and “Quidditch Through the Ages” on June 30! Originally published in 2001, the American editions of these Hogwarts textbooks have remained largely unchanged until now.
Today Bloomsbury revealed the latest image from the upcoming “Harry Potter and the Philosopher’s Stone: Illustrated Edition”, illustrated by Jim Kay. The new illustration is of Flourish & Blotts and joins six other previously released illustrations.
We’re all very excited about the fully illustrated editions of the “Harry Potter” novels that Bloomsbury is releasing, beginning later this year with “Harry Potter and the Philosopher’s Stone: Illustrated Edition”. In anticipation of the release, Bloomsbury has released four exclusive images from the first book.
