7 gorgeous animated GIF covers for Harry Potter books (pictures)

Harry Potter animated GIFs by Jessica MartinezThere were many great examples of recreating Harry Potter book covers, but so far none of them showed the magic of movement.

A multimedia artist, designer, and a self-proclaimed Harry Potter fan, Jessica “Jeca” Martinez, created these wonderful minimalist covers that illustrate in motion each of the Harry Potter books.

Jessica told Mashable editor Neha Prakash, that animated GIFs highlight essential objects from each book – like Albus Dumbledore’s Pensieve from Harry Potter and the Half-Blood Prince.

Each poster also contains a hidden lightning bolt as a tribute to Harry’s iconic scar. See if you can spot them below.
