Bloomsbury unveils new ‘Chamber of Secrets’ children’s edition cover

This morning, Bloomsbury U.K. unveiled the revamped cover of Harry Potter and the Chamber of Secrets as part of the publishing house’s re-release of the children’s editions with a new design.

The new cover depicts Harry, armed with the sword of Gryffindor, facing the vicious basilisk in the Chamber of Secrets with help from Fawkes. All the new covers are being illustrated by Jonny Duddle.



In March, Bloomsbury revealed the cover for Harry Potter and the Philosopher’s Stone when they announced the new editions. The reasoning behind the redesign of the books is to appeal to a new generation of readers. All seven of the new books will be released on September 1, 2014, and will even include new excerpts from Pottermore.
