Harry Potter E-Book Covers By Olly Moss

1

Designer Olly Moss, well known for his striking movie posters has created new covers for the worldwide digital release of the Harry Potter books, and they’re amazing.

“I really pitched my heart out,” Moss, a longtime fan of J.K. Rowling’s novels, tells Pottermore. “I came up with four or five different approaches and sketched most of the books for each. The next day I got on a plane to Comic-Con, crashed on a friend’s hotel room floor and figured I’d forget about it. Two days later I woke up really hungover – so, so hungover because we’d been in the hotel bar until four in the morning. I got that call that said I got the job and I lost my mind.”

While Moss says he tried to avoid spoilers on the covers, he wanted to make sure each illustration revealed multiple layers to the story.

“This is a world where things often seem quite mundane on the surface and then have a secondary reveal,” he says. “I love coming up with those images because it makes me feel that no one’s done this before – no one’s seen something in this specific way.”

The new covers are available now on Harry Potter e-books.

Harry Potter Returns In New Short Story By J.K. Rowling

p.txt

J.K. Rowling has given fans a glimpse of the grown-up boy wizard in a new story posted Tuesday on her Pottermore website.

It’s the first update since ‘‘Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows’’ was published in 2007, but Rowling spokesman Mark Hutchinson said there are ‘‘no plans’’ for a new Potter novel.

The 1,500-word story describes Harry, about to turn 34, attending the final of the Quidditch World Cup with his family and old friends Ron and Hermione.

Harry now has ‘‘threads of silver’’ in his hair and a mysterious cut on his cheekbone, related to his ‘‘top secret’’ work as an evil-battling Auror.

The story is written in the style of a gossip column for the Daily Prophet by reporter Rita Skeeter, a minor character in the novels.

The style allows Rowling to poke fun at the tabloid press, a real-life bugbear that she has accused of invading her privacy and that of her family.

Skeeter observes that Harry and friends are ‘‘no longer the fresh-faced teenagers they were in their heyday’’ and speculates about the state of Harry’s marriage to Ginny Weasley.

She says Ron Weasley’s red hair ‘‘appears to be thinning slightly,’’ and notes witheringly that Harry still wears ‘‘the distinctive round glasses that some might say are better suited to a style-deficient 12-year-old.’’

The story discloses that Ron now runs the family joke shop, while Hermione is a — literally — high-flying civil servant, Deputy Head of the Department of Magical Law Enforcement.

There are also updates on other characters, including Neville Longbottom and Luna Lovegood, as well as glimpses of a new generation of teenage wizards.

Rowling has long said that ‘‘Deathly Hallows,’’ would be the last Potter novel, but has produced other Potter-related material, including spin-off story collection, ‘‘The Tales of Beedle the Bard.’’
