About this deal

To calculate the overall star rating and percentage breakdown by star, we don’t use a simple average. Harry Potter’s fifth year at Hogwarts is a must-have visual feast featuring magical locations, iconic story moments and favourite characters, including Tonks, Luna Lovegood and more. This book is a huge book so instead of rushing the illustrations, he took a few extra years to illustrate the most beautiful text! Harry Potter and Fantastic Beasts characters, names and related indicia and trademarks of and © Warner Bros. Rowling’s seven part story has never looked so good thanks to illustrator Jim Kay’s incredible work.

Though there’ve been many versions of the Harry Potter books published, this is the first time the series has been illustrated in such detail. It’s for this reason that we can’t wait for the Half-Blood Prince illustrated edition release date to be unveiled! What comforts me is the knowledge that Bloomsbury will continue working with and supporting other artists to make the remaining books both beautiful and inspiring for new generations of young readers.Alongside Jim Kay’s most iconic illustrations are previously unseen pencil sketches and preparatory pieces, offering a unique and fascinating insight into the artist’s sketchbook. We've all found inspiration between the pages of Jo’s books; for myself, it's that intangible moment between reading words and creating pictures that I enjoyed, and shall miss, so much. The Quidditch Through the Ages Illustrated Edition will arrive October 2020 — that’s the year in between GOF and OOTP. Jim Kay has so far illustrated four of the seven Harry Potter books in the series, with his most recent work in Harry Potter and the Goblet of Fire released back in 2019. K. Rowling, I must thank them both for giving me ten years of happy scribbling, and for the opportunity of meeting so many Potter fans from all walks of life.

No detail has been spared here, with each page lovingly decorated with different wizarding world flashbacks, from the snowy towers of Hogwarts to the hustle and bustle of Diagon Alley. Each Harry Potter Illustrated Edition represents a huge and unique creative endeavour to bring to life the magic of J. The good news is that the Wizarding World franchise may unveil another book in the fall of 2022, in between releases of OOTP and HBP.

This is a stunning visual feast of a book, filled with dark magical delights for both fans and new readers alike. When Bloomsbury Children’s Books published the first Illustrated Edition of Harry Potter and the Philosopher’s Stone in 2015, readers were instantly mesmerised by Kay’s magical and rich evocation of the Boy Who Lived. Each day features a favourite anniversary or meaningful memory from the Harry Potter novels (366 in fact – including one extra for the leap year) all delicately illustrated with scenic artwork along the way. Readers feel a deep, emotional connection to his work, appreciating the stories in new ways as they marvel at the richness and artistry of each piece. Made a maquette out of a coat hanger, toilet roll, kebab sticks and clay to provide shading references for Thestral illustrations.

I'm not going to review the story, as I hope everyone has already read it or is at least familiar with it from the films. The illustrated Harry Potter books were on a yearly cycle until Goblet of Fire, which was published two years after Prisoner of Azkaban.Picture the magic with these dazzling, full-colour illustrated editions of the Harry Potter series (featuring complete and unabridged text). The ICKABOG and THE CHRISTMAS PIG and all related trade marks, characters, names, and indicia are TM and © J. Perhaps that off-year release in 2022 will be related to the third Fantastic Beasts movie, which is currently slated for release in Summer 2022. This new full-colour gift book sees the Kate Greenaway medal winner being joined by guest artist Neil Packer, winner of the BolognaRagazzi Award 2021.
