New Harry Potter Covers by Kazu Kibuishi
We’re not exaggerating if we’re saying that all the people in the world know who Harry Potter is, but 15 years ago almost no one had heard about the young wizard.
The first part of this successful literary series, written by Joanne K. Rowling, was published 15 years ago, when publishers were very skeptical about it. Eventually, the book “Harry Potter and the Sorcerer’s Stone” was published in a print run of 500 copies and became immediately a worldwide madness, being released in the United States in September 1998. It sold more than 150 million copies worldwide and now, in order to celebrate the 15th anniversary on August 27, 2013, Scholastic will reveal the seven books collection updated with new covers illustrated by New York Times illustrator, Kazu Kibuishi.
