HAMBURG, 21 July 2001 - British author Joanne K. Rowling's account of the
adventures and magic escapades of the "sorcerer's apprentice"
Harry Potter has captured the imaginations of millions of readers
worldwide. That said, every country has its own Harry Potter. Why?
Because the title illustrations are different everywhere.
recently opened exhibition Sabine Willharm: Pictures of the book
Harry Potter at Hamburg's Musuem for Art and Craft shows the work of
the Hamburg-based illustrator Sabine Willharm, who illustrated the title
pages of the Harry Potter books in the German version. Willharm's cover
illustrations are the greatest single influence on German-language
readers' idea of what Harry Potter looks like
On view until 2
September 2001, the show includes original drawings and sketches as well
as portraits of all the characters from the four volumes of the
best-selling series which have appeared to date in the German edition
published by Carlsen Verlag.
The exhibition Sabine
Willharm - illustrations to "Harry Potter" is the first of
a series of exhibitions of work by illustrators for children's books,
which will be continued this October with a review of the work of Ida
Bohatta and in early 2002 with the popular illustrations of the English
artist Beatrix Potter.
