The original U.S. Harry Potter book covers and chapter illustrations are nothing short of beautiful. Artist Mary GrandPré did a wonderful job capturing the magic world of witches and wizards and really pulling readers into Hogwarts, Hogsmeade, and everywhere Harry goes. A gallery of fifteen images showed up on imgur recently and they have supposedly never been published before. Regardless of whether they’re being shared for the first time, they are simply stunning and will probably make you long to go pick up the Harry Potter books at least one more time.
See more illustrations after the break.
