Last year, Bloomsbury and Scholastic debuted the illustrated edition of Harry Potter and the Sorcerer’s Stone, which included stunning images from Jim Kay, who worked closely with J.K. Rowling to get the towers, Hogwarts, and Dobby just right. Now, the publishers have debuted new images for the second Harry Potter book, Harry Potter and the Chamber of Secrets.

Debuting on Buzzfeed, the cover details the Weasley’s flying car heading towards The Burrow. “Seeing Jim Kay’s illustrations moved me profoundly,” Rowling said in a statement. “I love his interpretation of Harry Potter’s world, and feel honoured and grateful that he has lent his talents to it.”
