A Peek At The New Harry Potter Illustrations by Jim Kay

Ron Weasley- uninished:
Over the next few years, full-color illustrated versions of all seven books in J.K. Rowling’s “Harry Potter” series will be released, with Kay on board to illustrate them all.
On the blog of Alison Elred, the rep for Jim Kay, it says “The brief was to re-conceive the characters, architecture and landscapes based closely on the book rather than being influenced by the films. It’s been an exacting task as the films are so well produced but the result is a collection of totally original work which the reading public will be able to judge for themselves when the book is published in October 2015.”
