9780545791328_1c684Artist Jim Kay, winner of the UK’s Kate Greenaway Medal, is working his way through the Harry Potter canon, illustrating each novel in turn.

Up next is Harry Potter and the Chamber of Secrets Illustrated Edition (Scholastic/Arthur A. Levine Books; October 4, 2016; ISBN 9780545791328; $39.99)

J.K. Rowling’s website Pottermore released a set of sample drawings which include the cover image (of Harry and Ron in Mr. Weasley’s flying car), a portrait of Hagrid, an exterior view of Hogwarts, and a “da Vinci-esque study of Mandrakes.” There will be 115 images in all.

Entertainment Weekly and many other sites are reporting the story, and sharing the illustrations.

Kay’s version of Harry Potter and the Sorcerer’s Stone came out last October. This new edition is due on October 4th and is available to pre-order through wholesalers and retailers.
