Bloomsbury Children’s Books has unveiled the new cover art by artist Jonny Duddle for J.K. Rowling’s Harry Potter series on Harry Potter’s birthday (July 31st).

All seven titles will be published on 1st September, featuring an expanded biography on author J.K. Rowling as well as some bonus material from Pottermore. Together, Bloomsbury and J.K. Rowling selected Jonny Duddle, author and illustrator of picture books The Pirate Cruncher and The Pirates Nest, to be the new artist for the Harry Potter books.

Jonny said: “I’m hugely excited to work my way through the wonderful books, I couldn’t have asked for more enjoyable subject matter. It’s exciting, daunting and I feel the weight of responsibility, and I’m just hoping that my illustrations faithfully reflect the characters and the world created by J K Rowling.”
