So you’ve read all seven Harry Potter books multiple times, watched the movies a million times, visited the theme parks, museums and everything in between. How can you keep your Potter love alive? You can soon revisit the series through a whole new set of eyes.

Those eyes belong to artist Jim Kay, who has completed a brand new illustrated edition of Harry Potter and the Sorcerer’s Stone, which will be out October 6. A few images from the book were released earlier this year, but a brand new one of the Dark Lord himself was just released, as well as a few others we haven’t run yet. Check them out.


Note: The Voldemort image above won’t have the percentages around it. That’s just from a social media reveal.

“Seeing Jim Kay’s illustrations moved me profoundly,” said J.K. Rowling. “I love his interpretation of Harry Potter’s world, and I feel honored and grateful that he has lent his talent to it.”


The book has over 100 brand new illustrations in it so these are merely a taste. They’re sure to give the original Harry Potter book a whole new feel, and one decidedly different from the movies. Read more about it here.
