Rowling said, “I’m thrilled to see the Harry Potter books so beautifully realized on iBooks for the digital world; the artwork and animations in these enhanced editions bring the stories alive in a delightful new way.”

This isn’t the first time the Harry Potter series has come to the digital domain. Since 2012, users have been able to purchase ePub versions of the books from the Pottermore website.

Not only are the iBooks versions available directly from the iBooks Store, but they also contain special enhancements. In addition to new digital covers and custom Harry Potter typefaces, there are more than 200 original illustrations throughout the books.

Many of the illustrations are animated, and some are event interactive. Check out some examples below. In addition to the illustrations, the iBooks versions contain annotations written by Rowling.
