The Harry Potter series is getting a new British edition with a new series of color illustrations. And these gorgeous new covers evoke the adventure of the books with a look that would be perfect for an animated series.

Bloomsbury just released the cover images for the new "children's" editions, which will hit stores on September 1st. Illustrator Jonny Duddle did the artwork and the books will include highlights from the Pottermore website.
