Here Are The First Images From The Fully Illustrated Edition Of "Harry Potter"

Four beautiful illustrations of Ron, Hermione, Hagrid, and Malfoy from the upcoming full-color edition of Harry Potter and the Sorcerer's Stone, due out in October 2015.

Scholastic and Bloomsbury, the publishing houses that put out the Harry Potter books in the United States and the United Kingdom, today released the first four images from the first fully illustrated version of the Harry Potter books.

There's a sketch of a freckly young Ron, who looks like he might have a bit of an itch on his nose.

And there's Kay's interpretation of Draco Malfoy, who's looking eerie while getting magically measured for his Hogwarts robes in Madam Malkin's Robes for All Occasions, where he and Harry meet during Harry's first trip to Diagon Alley.

There's also an illustration of Hermione, who appears to be conjuring Bluebell Flames, which she used to set fire to Snape's robes during a Quidditch match, and also to save Harry and Ron from the Devil's Snare at the end of Sorcerer's Stone.

The detail in the student carvings on the wooden door and wall behind Hermione is amazing: a simple name engraving by young Tom Riddle; a little moon for Moony himself, Remus Lupin; and the symbol of the Deathly Hallows.

Plus a nod to J.K. Rowling: a quill and ink.

And finally there's Hagrid, towering inside the Hut on the Rock, where he rescued Harry from the Dursleys on his 11th birthday and introduced him to the wonders of magic.

Kay also posted a sketch of Harry Potter himself on his personal website.
