We all see Daniel Radcliffe when we think of Harry Potter but there’s soon to be a new version of the famous wizard coming from award-winning artist Jim Kay. He will be doing a serious of full-color illustrations for new editions of the books to be published by Bloomsbury in 2015. According to Kay:
“From my point of view it is without doubt the commission of a lifetime… to design the characters, the clothing, the architecture and landscapes to possibly the most expansive world in children’s literature, well let’s just say I’m extremely excited about it. However I am also mindful of the huge responsibility this represents. I want to make sure I do the best job I possibly can
Judging by these illustrations, he’s creating a wonderful new version of the Harry Potter world.
See Hogwarts after the break…
