Post 'Harry Potter: A Magical Year, The Illustrations of Jim Kay' book out this October

Scholastic and Bloomsbury UK announced the upcoming release of Harry Potter: A Magical Year, The Illustrations of Jim Kay, a compilation gift book featuring quotes from J.K. Rowling's novels alongside Kay's famous art. The book is set for release October 5, 2021.


A unique and beautiful gift book celebrating the astonishing art of Jim Kay – 366 magical moments from J.K. Rowling’s Harry Potter novels evoked in spellbinding brushstrokes, characterful ink work and intimate pencil sketches.

A Magical Year takes readers on an unforgettable journey through the seasons at Hogwarts. Jim Kay’s incredible illustrations, paired with much loved quotations from J.K. Rowling’s Harry Potter novels, bring to life all of the magic, beauty and wonder of the wizarding world.

This is an irresistible gift book for anyone who has ever been captivated by The Boy Who Lived. Each day features a favourite anniversary or meaningful memory from the Harry Potter novels. All around, Jim Kay’s scenic artwork and decorative painter’s marks bring that moment to life in breathtaking detail. His unique interpretation is both captivating and transporting – picture frozen icicles glinting on the snowy towers of Hogwarts, the dancing eyes of Professor Albus Dumbledore, or the infectious hustle and bustle of Diagon Alley. Stunning colour illustrations are joined by previously unseen pencil sketches and preparatory pieces, offering a unique and fascinating insight into the artist’s sketchbook.

Jim Kay’s dazzling depiction of the wizarding world has been enchanting readers since the publication of the groundbreaking Illustrated Edition of Harry Potter and the Philosopher’s Stone. Now both lifelong fans and new readers can explore that world further. The Kate Greenaway Medal winner’s bewitching character studies, sweeping landscapes and beautifully observed pencil details reveal the skill and process of an artist working at the peak of his powers.

This is the perfect gift to give at birthdays and Christmas, to share at bedtime or to make a friend smile. A Magical Year brings together Harry, Ron, Hermione and a host of other beloved characters in a bewitching illustrated compendium that readers everywhere will cherish for years to come.
