Bloomsbury is set to release the house edition of Harry Potter and the Chamber of Secrets , the second book in the Harry Potter series, in June 2018.
On the 20th anniversary year of Harry Potter, 2017, Bloomsbury had released house editions for Harry Potter and the Philosopher’s Stone , for the first time. The upcoming Chamber of Secrets editions will be designed by Levi Pinfold and published in four different Hogwarts House colours. The books will each represent a Hogwarts house and are coloured accordingly (red for Gryffindor, blue for Ravenclaw, green for Slytherin, and yelollow for Hufflepuff).
The Chamber of Secrets house editions will be released in both hardcover and paperback versions on June 28. The hardcovers will be published in Hogwarts house colours, with the artwork in black and striped sprayed edges, and the paperbacks will be black with coloured spines and artwork in the corresponding house colours.
Both the paperback and hardcover editions will contain additional content including an illustration of the house common room by Pinfold, a house introduction and a mini-feature on house-elves– similar to the Philosopher’s Stone house editions.
The 20th anniversary house editions of Harry Potter and the Philosopher’s Stone published last year were a huge success selling over 180,000 copies (UK TCM) across all eight editions. They became the backbone of the huge campaign for the 20th anniversary that even included breaking a Guinness World Record.
Bloomsbury will also publish house editions of the remaining five novels in the Harry Potter series. Dates are yet to be decided.
