Take a look at the new clever covers for Harry Potter ebook editions.
Pottermore has just revealed new cover art for the first ever worldwide digital release of the Harry Potter series.
These minimalist covers were designed by Olly Moss, a talented UK-based illustrator and graphic designer best known for his alternative versions of movie posters.
Creating the cover art for the one of the most popular book series in the world is a big challenge and quite a stress. Would it be as unique and involving as the Harry Potter books? Would fans accept the new design? Would the new covers fit into Hogwarts?
Take a look, and you’ll immediately agree that Olly Moss did an excellent work. These covers are 100-percent Harry Potter. But to fully appreciate them you need to look more than once. Each cover includes a hidden image that refers to the plot, and that you’ll discover when you analyze the layout in detail.
Let’s take Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows. See the scar on Harry’s forehead? Doesn’t it resemble the profile of Voldemort?
In the article on Pottermore revealing the covers, Moss said:
Deathly Hallows is my favorite cover, because it’s the image that has summed up Harry Potter in my mind for such a long time. The scar – it feels like the culmination of the entire series and that’s the image that’s been stuck in my head.
The editions with the new cover art will be available in Pottermore Shop in 2016, but other online stores are adding them to their catalogs right now.
You can get new Harry Potter editions on Barnes & Noble. There are already Audible audiobooks available on Amazon, and we can expect Kindle editions in the coming days.

A Woman of No Importance:
The Untold Story of the American Spy Who Helped Win World War II
by Sonia Purnell
France was falling. Burned-out cars, once strapped high with treasured possessions, were nosed crazily into ditches. Their beloved cargoes of dolls, clocks, and mirrors lay smashed around them and along mile upon mile of unfriendly road. Their owners, young and old, sprawled across the hot dust, were groaning or already silent. Yet the hordes just kept streaming past them, a never-ending line of hunger and exhaustion too fearful to stop for days on end.
Ten million women, children, and old men were on the move, all fleeing Hitler’s tanks pouring across the border from the east and the north. Entire cities had uprooted themselves in a futile bid to escape the Nazi blitzkrieg that threatened to engulf them. The fevered talk was of German soldiers stripped to the waist in jubilation at the ease of their conquest. The air was thick with smoke and the stench of the dead. The babies had no milk, and the aged fell where they stood. The horses drawing overladen old farm carts sagged and snarled in their sweat-drenched agony. The French heat wave of May 1940 was witness to this, the largest refugee exodus of all time.
Day after day a solitary moving vehicle weaved its way through the crowd with a striking young woman at the wheel. Private Virginia Hall often ran low on fuel and medicines but still pressed on in her French army ambulance toward the advancing enemy. She persevered even when the German Stukas came screaming down to drop 110-pound bombs onto the convoys all around her, torching the cars and cratering the roads. Even when fighter planes swept over the treetops to machine-gun the ditches where women and children were trying to take cover from the carnage. Even though French soldiers were deserting their units, abandoning their weapons, and running away, some in their tanks. Even when her left hip was shot with pain from continually pressing down on the clutch with her prosthetic foot.
