(anyway, this is not a book review although I did talk about a book, but I still put it under label: book review)
So...I was looking for books from Suzanne Brockmann on the internet, searching for another books from her series that I didn't get yet, but since it's from 1999, it kinda hard to look. Then, I start to look in bookstore like Periplus, Book Depository, and Open Trolley. When I get to Open Trolley then my eyes stumble upon something.
Dito and I (or is it Dito and ME? I always get confused), anyway, both of us is still crazy about HP. And it seems like every book we read, some part of it always back to HP. It really droves us crazy. Until now, I still can see HP movie without getting hyperventilating (yeah I know it's hyperbola). We may never dressed like a Hogwarts students, or visited Pottermore everyday, and I may never remember all the words from the book, but I assure you, both of us is Potterhead :D
Back to the bookstore.
Apparently, this year, commemorating 15 year of HP (I can't believe it's been 15 years already!!), Scholastic was going to release a new cover for HP books. And I love it!!
And here they are..
And according to Book Depository and also Open Trolley, "This special edition of "Harry Potter and the Sorcerer's Stone" has a gorgeous new cover illustration by Kazu Kibuishi. Inside is the full text of the original novel, with decorations by Mary GrandPre." And on Open Trolley there's a little bit more information, "and bonus material in the back."
The last part really got me curious. What bonus material?
This what Amazon.com has said about this newest edition:
The deluxe edition includes a 32-page insert featuring near scale reproductions of Mary GrandPré's interior art, as well as never-before-seen full-color frontispiece art on special paper. The custom-designed slipcase is foil-stamped and inside is a full cloth case book, blind-stamped on front and back cover, foil stamped on spine. The book includes full-color endpapers with jacket art from the Trade edition and a wraparound jacket featuring exclusive, suitable-for-framing art from Mary GrandPré.
And not just that...after we (or me, or you) bought all of the seven books, you'll have this..
Even the spine of the book will make a wonderful picture. I think it's Hogwarts.
So...are you going to buy it. I think I will. Hahahaha...although don't know when, but this one is really nice to collect.
I have HP books. Bahasa Indonesia edition and also English edition. Bahasa Indonesia edition, since its only from one publisher so I got the complete set. Not the English edition. I also planned to collect the "signature" edition, where on the cover there's HP' signature, but I don't think I complete it yet. But this one...I think I will.
Dito...what do you think?? :D
