Staff Report 

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.

The 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.
