New ‘Harry Potter and the Chamber of Secrets’ Cover

At Book Expo America this morning, Scholastic unveiled the new Harry Potter and the Chamber of Secrets cover designed by Kazu Kibuishi.


This cover depicts Harry and Ron arriving at The Burrow via their flying Ford Anglia. There are slight orange and red hues, which are sort of a throw back to Mary GrandPre’s original United States cover.

I forgot to post this a few days ago. I know it’s a book, not TV or film artwork. But they made this books into movies, yes? Therefore I say it works for a topic for this site… Look, just go with it alright? I love the Harry Potter book series.

I have mixed feelings about the new covers being created (see the new Sorcerer’s Stone cover here). In all honesty, as much as I love the books I was never a big fan of the covers. I actually like this cover a lot! At the same time, replacing the original artwork feels a bit disrespectful. I don’t know. I guess in the grand scheme of things I’m okay with it.
