New Harry Potter Cover Art!

Harry Potter and the Sorcerer's Stone (Harry Potter #1)         'Harry Potter' Books Get New Covers!

Scholastic has announced that they will be unveiling new cover art for the Harry Potter series in celebration of its 15th anniversary. The artwork comes from Kazu Kibuishi and will debut in September as a box set.

Books often need to be re branded in order to appeal to a new generation of readers. Publishers, like Scholastic, do this by redesigning the cover. Here are a just a few examples:

1. The Outsiders by S.E. Hinton

  Re-Covered Books: The Outsiders      The Outsiders

2. Forever by Judy Blume

                                  Forever...

3. Uglies by Scott Westerfeld

                  Uglies (Uglies Series #1)
