NEW YORK, April 10, 2018 /PRNewswire/ Scholastic, the global children's publishing, education and media company, today unveiled new covers for J\.K\. A great scaly snake connects the books, and when you put all of them together side-by-side, it reveals a larger photo that encompasses the entire series.

The attention to detail in Selznick's work is incredible, which will give fans plenty to pour over both now and when they purchase the new editions.

J.K. Rowling's Harry Potter novels have been re-released again and again with ever more handsome designs, from leather-bound copies with horcruxes, to multiple Hogwarts House-themed versions, to illustrated editions.

When placed side-by-side in chronological order, the seven books create a single image that tell Harry Potter's "life" story.

Well, the OG books are getting a bit of a makeover to celebrate the 20 anniversary of their publication in the United States and it looks totally different. It's a process he said took "dozens and dozens of sketches to get it right". For U.S. editor Arthur Levine, he hopes that these new covers will help introduce even more readers to the Boy Who Lived.

To mark the 20 th anniversary of Harry Potter and the Sorcerer's Stone, Scholastic is planning major events throughout the year including celebrations at bookstores, libraries, schools, and festivals around the country. But what makes these covers really magical is that when they are combined they make one gorgeous image.

You can view all of the covers below. The seven reissues, published by Scholastic, will go on sale in paperback on June 26, priced $12.99-$16.99.
