More from the press release

There will be complementary hardback and paperback editions of Harry Potter and the Prisoner of Azkaban. The hardbacks will be black with the house crest in a house colour and striped sprayed edges. The paperbacks will reverse the house colour theme and have single colour sprayed edges. Both editions will contain additional fascinating facts about the houses of Hogwarts, and specially commissioned illustrations by Levi Pinfold, showing favourite characters casting their Patronus.
 
Harry Potter and the Prisoner of Azkaban was first published on 8th July 1999. It was the book that began to reveal Harry Potter’s deeper destiny and heralded the start of a phenomenon. Considered the fan favourite by many, Harry Potter and the Prisoner of Azkaban introduced the terrifying Dementors to readers and the powerful Patronus Charm that defeated them, as well as four of Hogwarts’ most memorable alumni – Messrs Moony, Wormtail, Padfoot and Prongs!
 
The House Editions of Harry Potter and the Philosopher’s Stone were published to great acclaim in 2017 and became the backbone of the campaign for the 20th anniversary. They were followed by equally luxurious House Editions of Harry Potter and the Chamber of Secrets in 2018. Bloomsbury will publish House Editions of the remaining four novels in the Harry Potter series. Dates yet to be decided.
