Reworked Harry Potter Book Covers
Digging through stacks of books in garage sales and secondhand bookstores helped hone my book-hunting skills. Rare hardcover editions, old paperbacks, even staggeringly heavy collections do not escape me when I’m focused on looking for them. These adventures led me to different books with cover art ranging from the simplest to the most elaborate. While I find intricate details on book covers intriguing, I still find myself drawn to the simpler ones that do not confuse readers.
Looking at nice book covers never fails to cheer me up. Beautifully-illustrated covers and jackets are the first things I notice (aside from the weight of the book). They’re like portable art pieces I can bring and show my friends. Not only do I get to brag about a good find, I also get to enjoy the contents of the book itself.
Book cover designers devote time and effort to create the ideal art to serve as the book’s face. Different illustrations, photos, and fonts are considered in making book covers. One of my favorites, the Harry Potter series, has its US edition’s covers, jackets, and chapter illustrations by Mary GrandPré. In an interview with amazon.com, GrandPré revealed that she highlights scenes in the advanced copy of the book she receives. From there, she chooses the ones to illustrate and send to J.K. Rowling for approval.
Harry Potter’s devoted fans took it upon themselves to show how much they appreciate the books and the films. Fan-made art, such as reworked book covers of the series, are prominent online. An artist whose Harry Potter book covers I admire is M.S. Corley. He reinterpreted the covers of different books, including Harry Potter. His art reminds me of Penguin Classics’ covers where art is stripped off of unnecessary elements, focusing on an object, scene, or character in the book instead.
Other artists have also shared their reworked Harry Potter book covers online. Here are more samples of their work.
