Cool Covers: Harry Potter and the Philosopher's Stone

In case I haven't adequately confessed it yet, I am a HUGE Harry Potter fan.  Big. Huge. Fan.  I frequently stock the fan sites, follow Pinterest boards dedicated to the Potter Universe, and will read anything J.K. Rowling writes on principle.  The news last week that the series was getting a makeover made me wonder what Potter artwork already existed.  Here are a bunch of Harry Potter and the Sorcerer's Stone covers from around the world.  I'm not sure any single image is perfect, but altogether it kind of works, no?


  1. What is the deal with the one with the large rat? I cannot wrap my head around that one...

    1. Yeah, I think that one must be a case of the illustrator not actually reading the book before designing the cover. I can think of no other explanation.
