Pottermore has summoned the talents of designer Olly Moss once again for this beautiful reimagining of the Fantastic Beasts and Where to Find Them eBook cover, which will soon be available as an eBook on Pottermore.
Graphic artist Olly Moss has redesigned the cover for the Hogwarts textbook Fantastic Beasts and Where to Find Them, originally published in 2001 in aid of UK charity Comic Relief. Take a look:
Olly worked his minimalist magic on all seven Harry Potter eBooks just last year, and has chosen the majestic Hippogriff to feature on his new Fantastic Beasts cover. The Hippogriff is just one of many magical creatures that feature in the textbook.
This new edition will publish 14 March 2017 with a brand new foreword written by J.K. Rowling, and part of the proceeds will go towards Comic Relief.
Readers might remember that back in 2001 J.K. Rowling published two Hogwarts Library books: Fantastic Beasts and Where to Find Them and Quidditch Through the Ages – both in aid of Comic Relief.
The former was written by Magizoologist Newt Scamander, the character soon to appear in J.K. Rowling's new screenplay and feature-length film.
For those who favour a physical copy, Bloomsbury (UK) and Scholastic (US) will also reveal covers for their new editions of Fantastic Beasts very soon. For now, we hope you enjoy Olly’s unique new design of the textbook that kicked off Fantastic Beasts’ very fantastic future.
The Fantastic Beasts and Where to Find Them eBook will be available on the Pottermore Shop from 14 March 2017.
