The Daily Telegraph has a profile on the artist who did the cover for the UK edition of Philosopher’s Stone. Thomas Taylor was a recent art-school grad when he was paid a flat fee of less than £300 to illustrate the cover of J K Rowling’s first novel, Harry Potter and the Philosopher’s Stone, seven years ago, and now, he’s moving to France because the cost of living in the UK is too high, he said.
