Bloomsbury’s global celebration of J.K. Rowling’s Harry Potter stories is back in 2023, with a few changes …
Jim Kay’s Prisoner of Azkaban illustrations revealed
Bloomsbury and Scholastic today revealed award-winning illustrator Jim Kay’s cover of the third book in the Harry Potter series.
The striking cover illustration reveals Jim’s imagining of the iconic Knight Bus that whisks Harry off to Diagon Alley at the beginning of the book, in all its purple glory. And you can see more of Jim Kay’s Azkaban artwork exclusively on Pottermore.com
This new illustrated hardback edition will be published in English on Tuesday 3rd October 2017.
Pottermore Publishing and Audible have announced an extraordinary milestone – over one billion hours of the Harry Potter stories have now been listened to on Audible globally, since the audiobooks were first made available there seven years ago! Mind you, that’s just a number (even if it is a massive one)! What’s immeasurable is the love that fans have for these stories. To help you visualise that figure, in one billion hours you could hypothetically:
The Wizarding World invites fans to come together and celebrate a very special date in the Wizarding World calendar: Back to Hogwarts. The day J.K. Rowling wrote about Harry Potter and his friends Ron and Hermione first boarding the Hogwarts Express at Platform 9¾ to be whisked off to the Hogwarts School of Witchcraft and Wizardry that would change their lives forever.
