The new editions have changes overseen by J.K. Rowling herself, and will feature input from Pottermore and Jonny Duddle, the artist.
Along with the brand new artwork and an updated author biography, the editions will also be reset to create a child-friendly reading experience for a new generation of readers. The titles will also contain highlights from Pottermore, the digital platform for Harry Potter. All seven titles will be published on 1st September 2014.
Pottermore will publish the eBook editions of all seven books with the Jonny Duddle jackets at the same time.
Together, Bloomsbury and J.K. Rowling selected Jonny Duddle to be the new artist for the Harry Potter books. Jonny will create front, back and spine artwork for each. On being chosen to design the covers Jonny Duddle said, “I’m hugely excited to work my way through the wonderful books. I couldn’t have asked for more enjoyable subject matter. It’s exciting, daunting and I feel the weight of responsibility, and I’m just hoping that my illustrations faithfully reflect the characters and world created by J.K.Rowling.”
More information is to come in April, and the book is scheduled for late 2015. This information is courtesy of PR Newswire.
