Wednesday Cover Story: New Look for Harry Potter
Bloomsbury has announced that they will be rejacketing the entire Harry Potter series this winter to appeal to the ‘next generation of fans’. They are calling it The Signature Look. Great news for the artists and designers behind the revamp, although the first image released doesn’t excite me at all. Am I the only one?
You can get a glimpse of the whole revamped series here. Tell us what you think!

I think it has a distinctly 1950s air to it! It doesn’t appeal to me much, but then neither did the previous two sets of covers (“child” and “adult”) – and it didn’t do any harm to the books’ sales. There is one thing to be grateful for, though, they have not gone for the “vampire twilight lookalike cover” – if you go into a bookshop now and look at the teen reading section, all the covers seem identical.
I agree – these covers don’t appeal to me either although I like the lettering of ‘Harry Potter’.
