To mark the 10th anniversary of wizarding publisher Pottermore, and 25 years since the first Harry Potter book launched in the UK, Studio La Plage has created the new cover artwork for the next generation of digital readers.

Iconic moments from the book series such as the flying car from The Chamber of Secrets and the Knight Bus in The Prisoner of Azkaban have been brought to life through illustration. This modern take also captures a whole host of scenes that have never been featured on the covers before.

To coincide with the launch, a video series has been released to explore which moments were chosen to be captured and how they were developed – from initial sketches to completion.
