This piece is a little different from what I’ve been picking this month but it’s just as gorgeous. One thing that has always caught my eye was cover redesigns. I’ve thought of doing a few myself but it’s been hard making that kind of time lately. It’s covers like this that really inspire me to give it a shot myself. I wish I could buy the books with these specific covers right now because they’re probably the best ones I’ve seen. Take a look:

Once again, we have a Harry Potter piece! I’ve seen a lot of cover redesigns over the years but this one has stuck with me. I love the drawn / sketchy look and I love how there’s multiple elements from each book on the cover. I especially love the cats on Order of the Pheonix because it’s just a little bit funny to me and the tea cup on Prisoner of Azkaban. These covers were designed by Natalie Andrews on tumblr so go check her out and take a look at all her other work.
About Harry Potter and the Sorcerer’s Stone
Harry Potter thinks he is an ordinary boy. He lives with his Uncle Vernon, Aunt Petunia and cousin Dudley, who are mean to him and make him sleep in a cupboard under the stairs. (Dudley, however, has two bedrooms, one to sleep in and one for all his toys and games.) Then Harry starts receiving mysterious letters and his life is changed forever. He is whisked away by a beetle-eyed giant of a man and enrolled at Hogwarts School of Witchcraft and Wizardry. The reason: Harry Potter is a wizard! The first book in the “Harry Potter” series makes the perfect introduction to the world of Hogwarts.
“One can never have enough socks,” said Dumbledore. “Another Christmas has come and gone and I didn’t get a single pair. People will insist on giving me books.”
