In an Associated Press story about the new adult J.K. Rowling book, Bloomsbury has revealed future plans for the Harry Potter novels:

"...we intend to publish illustrated editions of all seven Harry Potter books in a rolling program from 2013 onwards in addition to our partnership on e-books with the Pottermore website," the publisher said in a statement. In the U.S., Scholastic spokeswoman Kyle Good noted that Scholastic didn't publish adult books.

"We will continue to publish her children's books in the U.S.," Good said Thursday.

The Harry Potter books will remain with Bloomsbury and Scholastic in Britain and the U.S., respectively.

(Thanks to our friends at Hypable for pointing out that it is Bloomsbury, not Scholastic, publishing the new editions!)

I love Mary GrandPre’s artwork, but it will be interesting to see what they come up with. I agree with moe miron, though – graphic novels would be a travesty! Something along the lines of Neil Gaiman’s ‘Stardust,’ with lots of beautiful color plates but not comic-book-type illustrations on every page, would be nice.

I love to see diffrent covers and illustrasions, it can be very interesting to see what the artist has done to make the book look interesting and that people, yeah, want to buy it! .. But, ofc it’s not the appearance that matters, haha..

Well, sounds exciting!
