Books are not something that you just read words in. They’re also a tool to adjust your senses. When I’m not feeling well there are times when I just can’t take in what I read. When that happens I try to think about what could be hindering my reading. There are books that I can take in smoothly even when I’m not feeling well. I try to think why. It might be something like mental tuning. What’s important when you tune is the feeling of the paper that you’re touching with your fingers, and the momentary stimulation your brain receives when you turn pages.

JK Rowling's bestselling boy wizard is due for a makeover, with the launch of award-winning illustrator Jim Kay's fully-illustrated edition of Harry Potter in 2015.

The first in the series, Harry Potter and the Philosopher’s Stone, is slated for publication in September 2015, and publisher Bloomsbury will release each of the subsequent titles annually, re-creating the original publishing schedule which started in London in 1997, and so successfully developed readers as they, and Harry and friends, grew older together.

Illustrator Kay has reimagined Harry for a new generation of readers, in a style that nods to Daniel Radcliffe’s portrayal of the boy wizard in the film versions of the novels, and captures the character of Harry in the books.”
