Pottermore can exclusively reveal new artwork from inside the Illustrated Edition of Harry Potter and the Prisoner of Azkaban from Bloomsbury, with new illustrations from award-winning artist Jim Kay.
Bloomsbury and Scholastic have just shared the cover of the Illustrated Edition of Prisoner of Azkaban, and Pottermore can exclusively reveal even more artwork from inside the new book.
The new fully-illustrated Prisoner of Azkaban will be available to buy from October 2017, and is the third of J.K. Rowling’s Harry Potter novels to be interpreted by the award-winning artist Jim Kay.
Readers can expect to see more depictions of Hogwarts professors, like Severus Snape, as well as new images of Hogwarts castle and the iconic Knight Bus, which features on the cover. Take a look:
The Illustrated Edition of Harry Potter and the Prisoner of Azkaban includes over 115 new graphics and is to be translated into over 21 languages around the world.
The third book in the Harry Potter series marked a notable change in tone, towards darker territory, as well as the introduction of key characters such as Sirius Black and Professor Trelawney. The Illustrated Edition will no doubt bring those new additions to life, and in Jim Kay’s distinctive style.
The Illustrated Edition of Harry Potter and the Prisoner of Azkaban will be released in hardback on 3 October.
