Happy #HarryPotterIllustrated publication day!

October 6, 2015

This is it! The wait is over! If you live in one of the lucky countries, you will be able today to get your copy of the Illustrated Edition of Harry Potter and the Philosopher’s / Sorcerer’s Stone. J.K. Rowling and the press are talking about this, because, although it may look otherwise, it is huge!

J.K. Rowling herself tweeted about it:

The Guardian published a gallery including artworks and photos of Jim Kay, and Metro published an article about the release of this edition.

The BBC uploaded a new video with Jim Kay, the illustrator, and Pottermore interviewed him about the whole process.

If you are not in the lucky countries, it does not matter. Remember you can order the #HarryPotterIllustrated from wherever you are from Wordery – who includes worldwide shipping for free! How cool is that? I guess they use owls!
