Throughout the decades, its publisher Scholastic has unveiled various book covers of the novels. Different versions such as the British and American editions have been circulated along with an anniversary edition. And, the series is quite known to have a huge following from every age.
One particular Hungarian student, who goes by the name of Kincso Nagy, is one of the most avid fans of the Harry Potter series. For her project in school, she designed stunning new covers for all of her favorite books. Harry Potter and the Sorcerer’s Stone, the first in the installment had amazing illustrations inside.
This was Nagy’s final project for her bachelor’s degree.
Nagy is quoted saying,
“The Harry Potter books are so magical, so mysterious and so adventurous. Basically these books are on the border of childhood. Therefore, my goal was to redesign them with such illustrations that show this extraordinary atmosphere of the books. I started to experiment with interactive illustrations that do not distract attention from the plot, but add to the story.”
