It's here! It's here! Just in time for the holiday buying season, the perfect gift for the Potter fan in your life has arrived. My copy came in the mail yesterday, and I couldn't wait to share this very special Harry Potter and the Sorcerer's Stone. It is the same story of the boy who lived that we know and love enhanced with some pretty amazing artwork.
This one of Hermione has to be one of my favorites so far. What I love about the illustrations by Jim Kay is they pay tribute to the movies in subtle ways but Kay didn't just draw stills of the movie characters. He really has breathed new life into a world that we all feel like we know everything about. It's been a long time since the last book came to stores and the last movie came to theaters, so it's been a long time since Potter lovers have had new material to enjoy. I really feel like this illustrated edition isn't redundant in the Potter world but contributes something new and exciting for us Potter heads!
I just adore this sweet picture of Harry! Love love love!
