“Harry Potter and the Half-Blood Prince” House Editions Are Now Available
Fellow witches and wizards: Head to your Gringotts vault and grab some Galleons, because the Harry Potter and the Half-Blood Prince House editions are now available for purchase. If you’ve been meaning to reread the book once more or were looking for an excuse to have a reading marathon, this is it.
As with previous releases, this brand-new edition features beautiful artwork and comes in the colors of all four Hogwarts Houses. Levi Pinfold is the mastermind behind the stunning illustrations, and if you look closely, you’ll see that each book features extra details unique to its Hogwarts House. All the books feature an image of the Half-Blood Prince (Severus Snape), who is surrounded by smaller images depicting characters and events from the story.
The Gryffindor edition features a portrait of Albus Dumbledore as well as an atmospheric image of Harry reading Quidditch Through the Ages, among other glorious details. Hufflepuffs can look forward to seeing a portrait of Ernie Macmillan, as well as an image of Newt Scamander in a field, doing research for his famous book Fantastic Beasts and Where to Find Them. Slytherins will spot a portrait of Draco Malfoy and an image depicting Snape studying his copy of Advanced Potion-Making. Ravenclaws will immediately recognize Luna Lovegood’s portrait as well as an illustration of Gilderoy Lockhart signing copies of his book Magical Me. Bloomsbury made short clips of each book, highlighting all the cool details readers can look out for, and there are plenty more aside from the ones we just pointed out.
We will *always* have a place in our hearts for this book in the series. House Editions of Harry Potter and the Half-Blood Prince are out today! Behold the glorious house-related detail on each cover, as illustrated by Levi Pinfold!
