UPDATED: MinaLima Reveals the Cover Design for Illustrated “Chamber of Secrets”

After the release of the spellbinding illustrated edition of Harry Potter and the Sorcerer’s Stone last October, fans were eagerly awaiting news on the second installment. Barely two weeks went by before an announcement was made: The sequel would be released this fall. More details of this book have finally been revealed, including an exact release date and the cover design.

The intricate cover is brimming with details from the book. Whether it’s the spiders that crawl across the cover, an appearance by Ron’s broken wand, or a mandrake plant, every Potter fan will see a new reference with each glance. The cover’s main image shows a famous scene from the book: Harry and Ron’s legendary journey to Hogwarts. With a bright-green background and elaborate gold detailing, the book is sure to catch the eye of wizards and Muggles alike.




Alongside the cover reveal, MinaLima also announced the release date of this illustrated book. You can preorder it now from MinaLima’s website, Amazon, and many other retailers. If you make your purchase from MinaLima’s website, it will be signed by the book’s designers, Eduardo Lima and Miraphora Mina. These signed copies cost £32 and ship worldwide. The book will be published on October 19, although preorders will ship starting October 18. This date means that the sequel will be published just under a year after its predecessor.
