I stumbled across this article about American publisher of The Harry Potter books, Scholastic, redesigning the cover of the first Harry Potter book, Harry Potter and the Philosopher’s Stone (or Sorcerer’s stone if you’re in America) to celebrate the 15th Anniversary of the books.
Here’s the British cover, which is the one I own and received aged 9, and think is the best.
And here is the old American cover on top, and the new American cover on the bottom.
The new cover is being released in September, as paperbacks. Would love to know your thoughts on the covers, and which you prefer.
