Alternate Kibuishi “Chamber of Secrets” cover revealed

As we reported last week, Harry Potter fans gathered Wednesday evening to meet illustrator Kazu Kibuishi at the Grove Barnes & Noble in Los Angeles – and they were treated to a very special peek at an alternate version of the artist’s cover for Chamber of Secrets! Thanks to one fan’s Tumblr post, those of us who weren’t at the event can get a look too:


The final cover for Chamber of Secrets was a little different, depicting the Weasley’s flying car approaching the Burrow rather than Harry in the Chamber. Which one to you prefer? Do you think we’ll ever see more alternate covers? Thanks to Snitchseeker for the tip!

I've never wavered from the declaration in my childhood journal, circa October 2000: "I LOVE Harry Potter! If I clean my room, my mom says she'll make me a dinner a wizard would love!" Proud Gryffindor; don't hate.
