5 New Designs for the Harry Potter Books

Harry Potter has inspired fandom of all kinds. In a few weeks, the end of the movie series begins with Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows, Part 1. To commemorate this moment in time, I’ve pulled together five collections of entirely new designs for the seven book covers.

Here’s the twist: one of them is real! The other four are all made by talented, artistic fans. But one of these redesigns is actually in use right now by publisher Bloomsbury in the U.K., where all seven books have been re-released. The idea is to “appeal to the next generation of readers who did not grow up with Harry Potter.”

Can you guess which cover collection is the real one? (Click the images to zoom in.) The answer is at the bottom of this page.

#1

#2

#3

#4

#5

Alright, got your guess?

Ready to find out the true covers?

If you guessed #3, you’re right! Bloomsbury released all seven books in paperback format with these new covers on November 1st. The covers are by artist Clare Melinsky.

Credits for the other collections:

#1 is by M. S. Corley.

#2 is by Michela Monterosso.

#4 is by Marissa.

#5 is by Megan Barrow.

Which one’s your favorite?
