The Hogwarts Library

The Hogwarts Library, written by author J.K. Rowling as well, consists of books that were all mentioned in the Harry Potter book series. The first two books, Fantastic Beasts and Where to Find Them and Quidditch Through the Ages, were released as a set in March 2001 for Comic Relief. Both were mentioned in the first installment of the Harry Potter series, Harry Potter and the Sorcerer’s Stone. The last of the set, The Tales of Beedle the Bard, which was first mentioned in Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows, was auctioned off for charity in December 2007. A year later, it was then released to the general public, with proceeds going to J.K. Rowling’s charity Lumos.

Jonny Duddle

Jonny Duddle is a Welsh illustrator who grew up roaming the mountains and beautiful landscapes of North Wales. He also spent much of that time drawing and creating his own beautiful worlds on paper.

After studying illustration in college, followed by a stint of unusual jobs, he eventually became a designer for computer games. It was while doing this that Jonny wrote and illustrated his first picture book, The Pirate Cruncher, in 2009. He followed this up with 2012’s The Pirates Next Door, for which he was awarded the Waterstones Children’s Book Prize. He would go on that year to work for Aardman Animations in animating their critically acclaimed film The Pirates! His artwork is created using a blend of pencil and digital drawing techniques.

In 2014, Bloomsbury contacted Duddle about illustrating a new set of covers for the entire Harry Potter series. These beautiful covers were released the same year. In 2017, Duddle also illustrated covers for the Hogwarts Library series.
