In conjunction with Harry Potter and the Philosopher's Stone’s 20th anniversary, British publishing house Bloomsbury is re-releasing the book four different ways: one for each Hogwarts house.

With red for Gryffindor, yellow for Hufflepuff, blue for Ravenclaw, and green for Slytherin, each book also includes a house crest on the cover and contains character profiles and house-specific illustrations within the book itself.

"Designed by award-winning illustrator Levi Pinfold, the covers will have two unique designs for both hardback and paperback, portraying the Hogwarts houses like never before," described the global digital publisher of Harry Potter and JK Rowling’s Wizarding World, Pottermore.

"As Pinfold explains, each cover tells a different story, with the artist using traditional heraldry from historic coat of arms imagery to delve deep into each house."

The books are available in the United Kingdom only starting May 31 and will be £7.19 (US$9.26) for paperback and £13.49 for the hardcover edition. (sul/kes)
