A set of Harry Potter books in Russian arrived at my work recently and they are just the most amazing covers that I wanted to share them with you all. I adore the way the spine of the series shows Hogwarts – I wish more series of books did this, it looks so beautiful on the shelf (also very helpful for putting the series in order when you cant read the language!)
The individual covers are also gorgeous. I find book covers in different languages fascinating, the different things that ‘sell’ a book and in this case the scene from the book that the artist and publisher have chosen to represent the story.
I love the UK covers for Harry Potter (both the originals and the newer ones) but I love the energy in these ones too.
