The illustrated editions of the Harry Potter books have been massively popular and really well received by fans and the author alike. Prisoner of Azkaban is expected to be no different. The book will be published globally, in 21 languages, on Tuesday, October 3, 2017.
We now also have a cover image and slipcase design for the deluxe edition! In line with the first two deluxe books, the cover is simple but rather beautiful, in a lovely turquoise-blue color, following the purple of the first, and the red of the second.
