Bloomsbury Announces New Release of Harry Potter and the Chamber of Secrets

Bloomsbury Announces New Chamber of Secrets Covers
Just in time to celebrate Harry Potter and the Chamber of Secrets's 20th Anniversary this summer, Bloomsbury UK will be releasing new covers for the second book of the series.

Similarly to commemorate Harry Potter and the Philosopher's Stone anniversary last year, the publishing house which began the wizarding world phenomenon in 1997, will be re-releasing the second title in hardback and paperback versions for each Hogwarts house - Gryffindor, Hufflepuff, Slytherin, and Ravenclaw

Known as the house edition covers by its corresponding colors, the new Chamber of Secrets was designed by Levi Penfold. Both versions will include additional content such as an illustration of the house common room, a house introduction, and a mini-feature on house-elves (fitting since the second book introduces the beloved house-elf Dobby!)

Bloomsbury UK has confirmed plans to release new covers for the rest of the series over time - we assume one new cover each year as their subsequent anniversary dates arrives. Fans in the U.S. are waiting to see if Scholastic will follow suit and celebrate their own re-release of the book series.

Harry Potter and the Philosopher's Stone house editions are still available. This new release is currently only available in the UK. You can pre-order Harry Potter and the Chamber of Secrets on Bloomsbury UK. The book will officially be released June 28th, 2018!

Are you excited for the house editions? Which Hogwarts house will you be celebrating?
