Along the dusty shelves of the Hogwarts library, young witches and wizards are accustomed to finding books containing magical surprises. Now we can experience a bit of sorcery ourselves with this new, innovative version of the first Harry Potter book.
From US Harry Potter publishers Scholastic, this new edition of Sorcerer’s Stone is adorned with paper craft features and special fold-out pages, artistically recreating the likes of Diagon Alley, and, naturally, Hogwarts School of Witchcraft and Wizardry. You can even immerse yourself in a pop-out Great Hall feast and (almost) join the festivities yourself.
“This new edition of Harry Potter and the Sorcerer’s Stone is the perfect way to start a new generation of readers on their Hogwarts journey, and at the same time is sure to be a treasured keepsake for fans to add to their collection,” said Ellie Berger, President Scholastic Trade. “The Harry Potter series continues to inspire readers of all ages with its universal themes of friendship, imagination and the triumph of good over evil.”
The book has been designed and illustrated by the talented team at MinaLima, helmed by Mira Mina and Eduardo Lima, who have injected their unique style into the Harry Potter and Fantastic Beasts films.
“Twenty years of designing for the Wizarding World have come full circle in this extraordinary opportunity to depict Harry Potter and the Sorcerer’s Stone in a whole new way. From creating Harry's Hogwarts acceptance letter for the first film, to envisioning his world for this new illustrated edition, MinaLima's many invitations to visualize this fantastic universe never cease to beguile. We have sought to bring together our artistry with J.K. Rowling's singular storytelling to offer the reader a completely fresh experience of this now new classic work," said Eduardo Lima and Miraphora Mina.
Look out for the new edition of Harry Potter and the Sorcerer’s Stone, coming 20 October 2020, published by Bloomsbury in the UK and Scholastic in the US.
