Jonny Duddle: Harry Potter

On September 1st the new editions of the Harry Potter books, with covers illustrated by award-winning Jonny Duddle were published for the next generation of Harry Potter readers. For Jonny, it's been the culmination of an intense six months during which he had to read all seven of JK Rowling's books, watch eight film adaptations and draw new front and back covers for each book as well as illustrate the box sets. The result is a stunning set of covers and presentation boxes which are a perfect gift for collectors and new readers alike.

Read The Telegraph's Arts Writer, Alice Vincent's revealing interview with Jonny about how he re-imagined the Harry Potter book jackets for a new generation.

Jonny Duddle: Harry Potter and the Chamber of Secrets

Bloomsbury have revealed the cover illustration by Jonny Duddle for the second book the famous Harry Potter series by J K Rowling, Harry Potter and the Chamber of Secrets. The cover shows the dramatic scene in the chamber itself with Harry facing the basilisk and Ginny Weasley lying on the floor beyond.

 Jonny describes his process in his Q&A from Bloomsbury:

How do you as an artist approach such a large job? Where do you begin with such a wide range of possibilities?

“I’m taking one book at a time. I read the cover brief, and then I read the story, making notes and occasional sketches. I collect references, from my library of non-fiction books, search online and take my own photographs. I’ve recruited my neighbours’ son, who is suitably Potter-esque, although he annoyingly had his slightly wild hair cut for the new school term. I make numerous sketches of the main elements of the cover and then cobble them all together digitally, until I have a cover rough I feel happy to send to Bloomsbury and J.K. Rowling. I hear back very quickly with comments on my rough, which I then tweak or redraw until everyone’s happy for me to progress. Then I ‘paint’ each cover digitally.”

Jonny Duddle Illustrates New Harry Potter Editions

We're very pleased to announce that Jonny Duddle has been selected to illustrate the new children's editions of the Harry Potter series for Bloomsbury Children's Books. It's a brilliant opportunity for his amazing artwork to reach so many children as Harry Potter inspires a new generation of wizards and witches. Jonny worked on a sample artwork which was chosen from three artists by J.K. Rowling and here's the finished cover for the first in the series, Harry Potter and the Philosopher's Stone.

 Jonny has six more covers to illustrate in time for their publication in September 2014, he said: “I’m hugely excited to work my way through the wonderful books. I couldn’t have asked for more enjoyable subject matter. It’s exciting, daunting and I feel the weight of responsibility, I’m hoping that my illustrations faithfully reflect the characters and the world created by J.K. Rowling.”
