Scholastic Publishing announced the release of a 20th anniversary special edition from the Harry Potter series. The cover illustrations are signed by Brian Selznick, awarded author of best sellers such as The Invention of Hugo Cabret and Wonderstruck. On July, the books will arrive at the bookstores individually, in paperback, and in September they will be launched in a special box set.
“I’m a big Harry Potter fan, and it is an incredible honor to illustrate [J.K. Rowling]’s iconic series”, said Brian. “I am thrilled to be a part in this exciting 20th anniversary celebration and look forward to meeting Harry Potter fans and readers across the country.”
The releasing is part of a campaign which will last the whole year in the United States. Besides the new editions, celebrations in bookstores, libraries, schools and festivals will take place, beyond the premiere of Harry Potter and the Cursed Child on Broadway and the opening of the exhibition Harry Potter: A History of Magic in the New York Historical Society.
