Bloomsbury unveil 20th anniversary house editions of ‘Goblet of Fire’ Bloomsbury unveil 20th anniversary house editions of ‘Goblet of Fire’

Bloomsbury will publish the fourth of their 20th anniversary house edition series of novels with the release of Harry Potter and the Goblet of Fire on 23 January. Goblet of Fire was first published in the UK on 8 July 2000. This anniversary release comes only seven months after Prisoner of Azkaban and sees the fourth series of house editions released in time for the publisher’s Trwizard Tournament themed book night.

The four Goblet of Fire house editions will be published in both paperback and hardback and feature intricate cover and internal artwork by illustrator Levi Pinfold. Common to each edition is the central illustration of the flaming Goblet, while a vignette of iconography unique to each house adorn the jackets.

 

For Goblet of Fire, those illustrations feature an ‘element’ specific to each house: fire, earth, air and water. The red Gryffindor house edition (fire) is bordered by Sirius Black’s head in the fireplace, a Hungarian Horntail, Harry on his Firebolt and Mad-Eye Moody’s magical eye. The blue Ravenclaw edition (air) and yellow Hufflepuff edition (earth) include the Beauxbatons Carriage, wandmaker Ollivander, Fleur Delacour; and the Triwizard Maze, Cedric Diggory and a Niffler, respectfully. The green Slytherin edition (water) shows Tom Riddle’s headstone, Viktor Krum, the Hogwarts Giant Squid and the Durmstrang Ship.

In addition, each book features an illustration of its respective house animal on the binding and new internal illustrations by Pinfold will include Rubeus Hagrid (Gryffindor), Garrick Ollivander (Ravenclaw), Cedric Diggory (Hufflepuff) and Lord Voldemort (Slytherin).

The Goblet of Fire house editions can be pre-ordered now over at Bloomsbury’s website ahead of their January release. Pre-orderers will receive an exclusive A5-sized foiled print of the coloured cover artwork design.

Robert Pattinson felt filming ‘Harry Potter’ was easier Robert Pattinson felt filming ‘Harry Potter’ was easier

robert-pattinson-cedric-diggoryRobert Pattinson reportedly found filming Harry Potter and the Goblet of Fire easier and less stressful than filming Twilight:

It’s different. When I was doing Harry Potter, which I did, there already had been three made. It was already a slick machine by the time I got into it. Whereas with Twilight, people didn’t realize really what it was, the extent of what it was, and it kept growing and growing.
