Ms Rowling may have long put her quill and parchment to rest, but the magic she started 15 years ago lives on in the hearts of millions and millions of Harry Potter fans a.k.a. “Potterheads” around the world.

In celebration of Harry Potter’s 15th anniversary, Scholastic unveiled seven new covers of the well-loved series, which went on sale in trade paperback on the 27th of August this year.

The revamped covers were illustrated by New York Times best-selling author and Eisner Award-nominated artist Kazu Kibuishi, who is best known for the on-going Amulet series of graphic novels.
