An announcement has been made recently about the upcoming release of the next in the illustrated editions of Harry Potter. Below are the details about the release and cover reveal for Harry Potter and the Goblet of Fire. I’m looking forward to adding it to my library with the first three.
Release from the Publisher:
BLOOMSBURY REVEALS STUNNING JACKET OF HARRY POTTER AND THE GOBLET OF FIRE ILLUSTRATED EDITION
‘And there was the Horntail, at the other end of the enclosure, crouched low over her clutch of eggs, her wings half furled, her evil, yellow eyes upon him, a monstrous, scaly black lizard, thrashing her spiked tail, leaving yard-long gouge marks in the hard ground.’
Bloomsbury Publishing is delighted to reveal the cover of the eagerly anticipated Harry Potter and the Goblet of Fire Illustrated Edition written by J.K. Rowling and illustrated by Jim Kay.
For the breath-taking front cover image, Kate Greenaway Medal winner Jim Kay has pictured the moment Harry Potter faces the Hungarian Horntail dragon during his first task in the Triwizard Tournament.
Publishing in Australia, New Zealand, the UK and USA on Tuesday 8th October 2019, the hardback Illustrated Edition will feature a wraparound dust jacket, ribbon marker, head and tail bands, illustrated endpapers and over 115 colour images. The Illustrated Edition will subsequently be published around the world in more than 21 languages all featuring Jim Kay’s artistic wizardry. A sumptuous Deluxe Edition will also publish 18 November 2019.
The first three Harry Potter Illustrated Editions were published to worldwide critical acclaim and Jim Kay’s artwork was universally embraced by fans and new readers alike. Combined sales of all the current Illustrated Editions across hardback and paperback formats now exceed 213,300 copies in Australia and New Zealand through Neilsen Bookscan.
Pottermore has exclusively revealed examples of artwork from Harry Potter and the Goblet of Fire Illustrated Edition. Visit pottermore.comt o see Jim Kay’s astonishing art.
