Bloomsbury today announced that they will be giving the UK Harry Potter books a visual refresh this coming November. The books, classified as "signature" editions, feature new cover art by artist Clare Melinsky.

The new editions, which are being marketed as novels for the, "generation of readers who did not grow up with Harry Potter", will be available on the first of November in paperback. A box set of all seven books will also be released.

The new illustrations are by renowned linocut artist Clare Melinsky and the design has been created by Webb and Webb Design Limited. Clare Melinsky's illustrations follow the style of traditional woodcuts and will appear on the front cover, back cover and spine for all seven titles in the Harry Potter series.

Clare Melinsky commented, 'I was delighted and excited to be asked to illustrate the covers for such massively famous books – and seven of them! It was top secret for the best part of a year.'

Books 1 – 3 will be available for £6.99, while books 4-7 will cost £8.99. The box set will be available for £59.99.
