There’s no such thing as owning too many versions of the Harry Potter books. A paperback box set featuring new covers by illustrator Kazu Kibuishi was recently released, and an illustrated edition of Harry Potter and the Sorcerer’s Stone is on the way next month. You can also buy a set to match your Hogwarts House. Whether you self-sorted or used the quiz on Pottermore to determine where you belong, you can show your allegiance with a set of books bound in House-themed covers.
Juniper Books sells custom designs in Gryffindor, Ravenclaw, Hufflepuff, and even Slytherin house colors and themes. The seven hardcover books come packaged in a cardboard traveling trunk. They’ll take up a chunk of space on your bookshelf, but look how elegant they are—I think it’s worth sacrificing some shelf real estate:
Each set retails for $275. Yes, it’s probably as much as a Hogwarts student would pay for a year of textbooks, but at least you don’t have to travel all the way to Diagon Alley to pick these up. Be sure to check out what all the Houses look like in the gallery below. And don’t worry, they’re fixing the Ravenclaw design. The mascot for Ravenclaw is an eagle, not a raven, so Juniper Books is adjusting the cover accordingly.
Which house to you belong to? Head to the comments and let me know. And remember, it’s the year of Hufflepuff according to J.K. Rowling—don’t be ashamed to admit it.
