So I’m sure you all probably know by now that the illustrated edition of HP & the Philosopher’s Stone came out earlier this month, and maybe you’ve even gone and brought your copy already, but I just got mine the other day and I am still on cloud nine about it and just wanted to share!!!!
It case you have no idea what I’m talking about they (cause I have no idea who’s brilliant plan this was, but whoever you are I’m sending my love your way) decided to republish the Harry Potter books as illustrated editions! They plan to release a new book ever year, and the first one was released on the 6th of this month. All the illustrations are done by Jim Kay, who illustrated Monster’s Call by Patrick Ness, and is a fantastic illustrator!!!
I was going to wait till my monthly haul post to fangirl about this book, but I thought it deserved a post of it’s own!! I literally was smiling for like 20 minutes after picking up this book! It’s SO beautiful and now I just can’t wait to have them all!! (Seven fucking years though!!!). I’ve been having a cheesy sort of fantasy about being able to get my future kids into reading by reading them these book! And them falling in love with the pictures and story!
I even moved around some books on my book case to give it prime position on my bookcase!!
