Award winning artist Jim Kay has the enviable task re-imagine the world of Harry Potter. Kay was recently commissioned by Bloomsbury to illustrate new, full-colour editions of the Potter novels.
Here is Jim’s view of his daunting assignment:
“From my point of view it is without doubt the commission of a lifetime… to design the characters, the clothing, the architecture and landscapes to possibly the most expansive world in children’s literature, well let’s just say I’m extremely excited about it. However I am also mindful of the huge responsibility this represents. I want to make sure I do the best job I possibly can.”
The new editions of J.K. Rowling’s masterpiece are set for a September 2015 release.
