Celebrating 20 Years of Harry Potter

On August 10, 2016

Bloomsbury will be celebrating 20 years of Harry Potter next year with a campaign that includes special anniversary editions and an exhibition at the British Library. The exhibition will open in October 2017 and will take readers on a "spellbinding journey to the heart of the Harry Potter stories"

Monday, June 26 2017 will mark the anniversary of the publication of the first book in the series, Harry Potter and the Philosopher’s Stone. A generation of children have grown up with the Harry Potter global phenomenon, their childhood memories include waiting for the release of each Harry Potter book, joining the queues of avid fans to ensure they got the latest release in their hands on the day.

Bloomsbury will publish four ‘Hogwarts House Editions’ of Harry Potter and the Philosopher’s Stone: Gryffindor, Hufflepuff, Ravenclaw and Slytherin. Each edition will feature the house shield illustrated on the jacket and "stunning" sprayed edges in house colours.

So, all you Muggles there is is lots to look forward to in 2017 with more news to come.
