Industry Reviews

Seeing Jim Kay's illustrations moved me profoundly. I love his interpretation of Harry Potter's world, and I feel honoured and grateful that he has lent his talent to it * J.K. Rowling *
Kay's illustrated edition of Harry Potter and the Philosopher's Stone is a triumph - a book so alive it seems to jump, explode and slither out of your hands as you read * Praise for Harry Potter and the Philosopher's Stone Illustrated Edition, Telegraph *
Stunning ... Greenaway Medal winner Kay breathes incredible life into these much loved characters and locations, staying faithful to Rowling's vision but revitalising the story for a new generation * Praise for Harry Potter and the Philosopher's Stone Illustrated Edition, Bookseller *

Absolutely magical!

This special edition illustrated version of The Chamber of Secrets is the magical addition you need for your completion. The gold pages and the beautiful hardcover are just the start of experiencing the magic all over again. This is truly something special. Would not recommend for young children as the destruction of this book would break a true Potter fan's heart. A true collector's item!

Worthy of a HP collection

These large format collector editions are just magical (pardon the pun) and Jim Kay's illustrations are absolutely perfect. It's rather difficult to get through as a "readers copy", so make sure you have a paperback as backup. This edition is immaculate and the gilt edges will deter an "everyday read", anyway - keep it for special, it's a brilliant addition to your Harry Potter collection.

About the Author


J K (Joanne Kathleen) Rowling was born in July 1965 at Yate General Hospital in England and grew up in Chepstow, Gwent where she went to Wyedean Comprehensive.

Jo left Chepstow for Exeter University, where she earned a French and Classics degree, her course including one year in Paris. As a postgraduate she moved to London and worked as a researcher at Amnesty International among other jobs. She started writing the Harry Potter series during a delayed Manchester to London King's Cross train journey, and during the next five years, outlined the plots for each book and began writing the first novel.

Jo then moved to northern Portugal, where she taught English as a foreign language. She married in October 1992 and gave birth to a daughter Jessica in 1993. When the marriage ended, she and Jessica returned to the UK to live in Edinburgh, where Harry Potter & the Philosopher's Stone was eventually completed.

Jo married Dr. Neil Murray in 2001, and a brother for Jessica, David, was born in 2003. A sister, Mackenzie, followed in 2005.
