my favourite potter book covers have to be the UK adult version. Though I only have the children version at the moment

Although i quite admire her artwork i’m still not 100% convinced about her drawing abilities especially when it comes to the cover of GOF. The UK versions are full of details in comparison to her cover art.

Mary has a fairly distinct art style, and I love what she did with the universe of Harry Potter. If you attend this event, I hope you enjoy. I’ve heard that she’s an incredibly friendly woman.

Not fair at all! If I would have known about this sooner, I so could have gone. Unfortunately, with the midnight release tomorrow, my mom is going to be tired enough without. The one time anything happens in DC, I swear, and I can’t go. No one ever comes here. We’re so unloved. xD
