M. S. Corley's Harry Potter Book Covers

Loving these conceptual Harry Potter book covers by M. S. Corley. He also did a series of covers for the Lemony Snicket series.

Via Ace Jet 170.


  1. I like the illustrations, but other than that I actually really dislike them overall.

  2. Truly amazing! It reminds me first printing (ages ago, in early 80's) of J.R.R. Tolkien books with very similiar styled covers. Impressed, this is how I feel.

  3. I kind of agree with Sosillee. They are neat as illustrations, but i don't think any child would be drawn to these book covers. If you can't pull in your biggest target market, the design is a failure.

  4. i actually have never read harry potter, but this would make me buy the series just for the covers.

  5. Wow. I love these. And I think they aren't really for the kid audience. They hit me as covers for adults more. Just the like adult UK covers... I would so buy the books with these covers on them.
