What do you think of these new Harry Potter covers [designed for the newer generation that hasn't "grown up with Harry Potter"]? Personally I think they're lacking the magic. They also remind me of the Famous Five book covers [scroll down for it]. The name Harry Potter, I suppose, is written in Harry's writing [looking at Harry's handwriting from Fantastic Beasts And Where To Find Them]. But still. I like the older covers better. Maybe they could've kept the colours the same [maroon and yellow for PS, green and blue for CoS, purple and yellow for PoA, and so on]. Maybe it's because I grew up with them? :)
These would be hitting the shelves in November. Which shelves [UK? USA? New Zealand?]? I don't know. Not sure if the old ones are still going to stay. Not sure about what Scholastic is doing, because these are Bloomsbury covers.
I have the first four in boxed set Bloomsbury childrens paperback, the fifth in Bloomsbury adult paperback, and the sixth and seventh in Bloomsbury childrens hardcover. Haha ... anyway, here's the Famous Five cover:
