We’ve all been eagerly awaiting the release of the Illustrated editions of Harry Potter – well, I have anyway – so now’s the time to rejoice, because last week the first book; The Philosophers Stone, went on sale.
J.K. Rowling’s timeless story about Harry and the wizarding world has been transformed before our very eyes by artist Jim Kay. Forget everything you saw in the movie because Kay has channeled Rowling’s words onto paper through his own imagination, and the results are incredible. The characters have new faces, the buildings are bigger, the oppertunities are endless when it’s just you and your pencils. Take a peek at a few of the amazing images from the book below.
