This new hardcover edition of Harry Potter and the Sorcerer's Stone is gorgeous, and I think I'm going to need one.  Look at the cover artwork up close: it's just beautiful.  This is by far the best cover illustration for the first book in the Potter series that I've seen.  Trust me, I've encountered a lot of them.  It will be published on September 23, 2008.  

For those who care, my next favorite cover of a Potter book #1 is this blue American mass market paperback.  It looks a better in the flesh than it does in that picture, and yes, I do own a copy.
