Welcome to Comparing Covers where I showcase a book title that has multiple covers; from first editions, re-releases, and international releases.
The nice thing about established and popular book series are the many different editions that come out. Especially anniversary editions.
Today, I’m showcasing the awesome 20th anniversary Harry Potter editions with new illustrations by Caldecott Medalist Brian Selznick. Also, the new house editions of Harry Potter and the Sorcerer’s Stone are awesome. I plan on buying myself a Gryffindor one, because, that’s my house according to Pottermore. 🙂 (BTW-I took that quiz 3 times and still ended up in Gryffindor).
So, a little fun tidbit, as I was arranging the new illustrated editions of the covers in Photoshop, I found out that it makes a whole new image! It’s a cool little secret that I was so excited to find out about.
So vote for your favorite edition below!
