J.K. Rowling has even endorsed the book, herself. Here's the quote that's going to show up on the back of the finished book, as well:

"Seeing Jim Kay's illustrations moved me profoundly. I love his interpretation of Harry Potter's world, and I feel honoured and grateful that he has lent his talent to it."
