Dynamic New Cover Art for Harry Potter eBooks and Audiobooks Revealed
Harry has a new look! The global digital publisher of the Wizarding World, Pottermore Publishing, has brought its cover art bang up to date with a dynamic new suite of designs for the Harry Potter eBooks and audiobooks.
Bringing both iconic and lesser-known scenes from these beloved stories alive in thrilling detail for fans and new readers alike, the new cover art invites the next generation of readers and listeners to jump into the action and discover the Harry Potter books on their phones, tablets, e-readers and other devices.
The new covers, as created by design team Studio La Plage, bring to vivid colour scenes from the books, some never before depicted, such as Harry’s Great Lake task in Goblet of Fire, as well as giving new perspectives on iconic moments such as Harry’s first Quidditch match.
Jack Bedford, Associate Creative Director of Studio La Plage, said: ‘We wanted to retain the essence of what readers know and love most about the Wizarding World. The new covers celebrate the moment before the action, asking the question ‘what happens next’? We can’t wait to share them.’
The seven cover designs will be adopted in all territories across the digital Harry Potter eBooks and audiobooks from 31st May 2022. Each cover places the characters at the centre of the action, and incorporate small details from the stories to delight and intrigue. Take a closer look at the cover artwork for each book and see what you can spot!
