New-look Harry Potters on their way

Penguin Books India is set to launch the new-look Harry Potter titles - all seven of them - exclusively in the paperback format on November 1.

The newly-designed 'Signature' edition of JK Rowling's universally popular books will appeal to the next generation of readers who did not 'grow up' with Harry Potter and who have not yet experienced the thrill of life at Hogwarts, a press release from the company said.

The new illustrations are by renowned linocut artist Clare Melinsky and the design has been created by Webb and Webb Design Limited.

Clare Melinsky's illustrations follow the style of traditional woodcuts and will appear on the front cover, back cover and spine for all seven titles in the Harry Potter series.

Melinsky had this to say - 'I was delighted and excited to be asked to illustrate the covers for such massively famous books - and seven of them! It was top secret for the best part of a year.'
