Jim Kay on Harry Potter

The illustrated edition of Harry Potter and the Order of the Phoenix is published worldwide on 11th October 2022. This new full-colour gift book sees Jim being joined by guest artist Neil Packer, the winner of the BolognaRagazzi Award 2021.

This will be the last of the Harry Potter books to be illustrated by Jim. He says: 'After ten years of working with Bloomsbury, it is with great sadness that I have to step down from illustrating Harry Potter. I have been struggling with mental illness for some time, and it would be wrong to try and continue when I can no longer give the fans and the series the full commitment and energy it deserves. What comforts me is the knowledge that Bloomsbury will continue working with and supporting other artists to make the remaining books both beautiful and inspiring for new generations of young readers.'
