Many of us grew up with the Harry Potter series, a line of novels that followed a young boy of the same name, who battles Lord Voldemort, an evil wizard who wants to become immortal and take control of the wizarding and Muggle (non-magic) world. It spawned a series of successful films, offshoots, and themed attractions in theme parks, becoming one of the highest-grossing media franchises of all time. To celebrate its 20th anniversary, Bloomsbury is coming up with a special edition of its first novel, The Philosopher’s Stone.
There will be a total of eight designs, two of which will reflect each of Hogwarts School of Witchcraft and Wizardry’s four Houses: Gryffindor, Slytherin, Ravenclaw, and Hufflepuff. The covers that prominently feature the House’s colors are paperback, while the predominantly black covers are hardbound. They are designed by award-winning illustrator Levi Pinfold.
Paperback copies are $7.19 (roughly P359.50), while hardbound copies are $13.49 (roughly P674.50).
They are available for pre-order at Bloomsbury’s website, and they will be released on June 1.
