Harry Potter Gets Cover Makeover!

Yes, you read the title. Our beloved series gets a makeover to celebrate it's 15 anniversary. Now, how exciting can it be? It's 15 years now and Harry Potter series still in our hearts. Oh, how fast time goes by and now I feel old, seriously!

The new cover is designed by the talented son of a gun Kazu Kibuishi, who is an artist and also an author himself. Here's a sneak peek for the new cover of Harry Potter and The Sorcerer's Stone:


For those of you who love the iconic Mary GrandPré's cover, do not worry because they will continue to be featured on the U.S. hardcover and digest paperback editions. Can't wait to get the new covered books? Looks like we really do have to wait because they'll be released as a box set in September. I am very curious on how the rest of the books will look like. To tell you the truth, I think I prefer the new look because its more vibrant and eye-catching. How about you? Which do you prefer? The new look, or the original cover and why?
