About The Book

Dragons! Daring! Danger! The first wholly illustrated version of Harry Potter and the Goblet of Fire is an excellent innovative achievement by two great talents. Jim Kay’s stimulated reimagining of J.K. Rowling’s classic collection has captured a committed following worldwide, and the drama just gets better as the sequence progresses. With over one hundred fifty illustrations, Jim Kay’s special vision supplies breathtaking scenes and unforgettable characters – including fan favourites Cedric Diggory, Fleur Delacour and Viktor Krum illustrated by Jim Kay for the first time.

Fizzing with magic and brimming with humour, this full-colour version will captivate fans and new readers alike as Harry, now in his fourth year at Hogwarts School of Witchcraft and Wizardry, finds himself competing in the legendary Triwizard Tournament and dealing with death-defying tasks, dragons and Dark wizards. Making magic in paint, pencil and pixels, this is the Wizarding World as we have never seen it before.

Seeing Jim Kay’s illustrations moved me profoundly. I love his interpretation of Harry Potter’s world, and I feel honoured and grateful that he has lent his talent to it (J.K. Rowling).

Kay’s illustrated version of Harry Potter and the Philosopher’s Stone is a triumph – a book so alive it appears to jump, explode and slither out of your hands as you study (Telegraph on HARRY POTTER AND THE PHILOSOPHER’S STONE ILLUSTRATED EDITION).

It is amazing . with full-colour illustrations throughout from Greenaway Medal winner Kay, who breathes magnificent life into these much-loved characters and locations, staying devoted to Rowling’s vision however revitalising the story for a new generation (Bookseller on HARRY POTTER AND THE PHILOSOPHER’S STONE ILLUSTRATED EDITION).

One of the best literary adventures of contemporary times (Sunday Telegraph).

J.K. Rowling is the author of the record-breaking, multi-award-winning Harry Potter novels. Loved by fans around the world, the series has sold over 500 million copies, been translated into over 80 languages, and made into eight blockbuster films. She has written three companion volumes in aid of charity: Quidditch Through the Ages and Fantastic Beasts and Where to Find Them (in aid of Comic Relief and Lumos), and The Tales of Beedle the Bard (in aid of Lumos), as well as a screenplay inspired by Fantastic Beasts and Where to Find Them, which marked the start of a five-film series to be written by the author. She has also collaborated on a stage play, Harry Potter and the Cursed Child Parts One and Two, which opened in London’s West End in the summer of 2016 and on Broadway in early 2018. In 2012, J.K. Rowling’s digital company Pottermore was launched, where fans can enjoy news, features and articles, as well as original content from J.K. Rowling. She is also the author of The Casual Vacancy, a novel for adult readers, and the Strike crime series, written under the pseudonym Robert Galbraith. She has received many awards and honours, including an OBE and Companion of Honour, France’s Légion d’honneur, and the Hans Christian Andersen Award.

Jim Kay won the Kate Greenaway Medal in 2012 for his illustrations in A Monster Calls by Patrick Ness. He studied illustration at the University of Westminster, and worked in the Library & Archives of Tate Britain and then as an assistant curator of botanical illustrations at the Royal Botanic Gardens at Kew before returning to producing art full-time. After a one-man exhibition at Richmond Gallery he was approached by a publisher and his freelance career began. Alongside his illustration work, Jim has produced concept work for film and television, and contributed to the group exhibition Memory Palace at the V&A Museum in London. The Illustrated Edition of Harry Potter and the Philosopher’s Stone was published to international acclaim. Bloomsbury has commissioned Jim to illustrate all seven books in J.K. Rowling’s classic series. Jim lives and works in Northamptonshire with his wife.
