Exciting news for Harry Potter fans! Bloomsbury UK has announced new, illustrated editions of the Harry Potter books are to be released and they’ve already unveiled some images from the upcoming “fully illustrated edition” of Harry Potter and the Philosopher’s Stone.

The four illustrations show Rubeus Hagrid, Hermion Granger, Draco Malfoy, and Ron Weasley and were done by UK illustrator Jim Kay. The first book will contain over 100 illustrations and is due out worldwide in October with the others to follow over the coming years. We can’t wait!
