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.

Bloomsbury will publish the third of their 20th anniversary House Edition series of novels with the release of Harry Potter and the Prisoner of Azkaban on 13 June. The ‘Azkaban’ House Editions follow the 20th anniversary releases of Philosopher’s Stone (2017) and Chamber of Secrets (2018). Prisoner of Azkaban was first published in the UK on 8 July 1999.
The four Prisoner of Azkaban House Editions — each designed for a Hogwarts house — will be published in both paperback and hardback and again feature original jacket artwork by Levi Pinfold. The ‘Azkaban’ House Edition covers depict Sirius Black in his black-dog animagus form and are surrounded by intricate illustrations unique to each house.
The red Gryffindor House Edition is bordered by James Potter in animagus form, Harry conjuring a Patronus and the lone figure of Hagrid. The blue Ravenclaw edition is adorned with illustrations of Professor Trelawney, Azkaban Prison and Buckbeak the Hippogriff. The yellow and green Hufflepuff and Slytherin covers feature the Knight Bus, Hufflepuff Quidditch Captain Cedric Diggory, Dementors; and executioner MacNair, Peter Pettigrew as an animagus rat and a Wolfsbane Potion respectively.
In addition, each book features an illustration of its respective house animal on the binding. Incidentally, when all seven novels have been published, the alternating colours will form a Hogwarts house scarf. New internal illustrations by Pinfold show different characters casting the Patronus Charm.
The Prisoner of Azkaban House Editions can be pre-ordered now on Bloomsbury’s website.
