Bloomsbury UK Releases New Jim Kay Illustration!
We’re all very excited about the first fully illustrated Harry Potter book that is being released later this year. The book will be illustrated by Jim Kay, as we announced in 2013. Bloomsbury UK has already released several images, and back in March, both the cover images of the US and US editions were released.
Today, May 20, Bloomsbury UK released another in the build-up to the book’s release. The image depicts the young Harry, in the cupboard under the stairs, taking inspiration from this line in Harry Potter and the Philosopher’s Stone:
Harry was used to spiders because the cupboard under the stairs was full of them, and that was where he slept.

The fully illustrated edition of Harry Potter and the Philosopher’s Stone: Illustrated Edition will be released by Bloomsbury UK and Scholastic on October 6, 2015. Find out more details and how you can pre-order the book here.
