This Fall, UK Harry Potter publisher Bloomsbury will be repackaging the seven Harry Potter novels with new Signature Edition covers, the Bookseller reports. High Res photos of these signature edition covers for the Harry Potter series can be found right here in our image galleries.
Set to be published on November 1, these editions will be available exclusively in paperback format and are aimed to “appeal to the next generation of readers who did not ‘grow up’ with Harry Potter and who have not yet experienced the thrill of life at Hogwarts.” Illustrations for the seven signature editions are the work of inocut artist Clare Melinsky, who is quoted as saying:

“I was delighted and excited to be asked to illustrate the covers for such massively famous books”and seven of them! It was top secret for the best part of a year.”
