J.K. Rowling's dark fantasy Harry Potter book series has always been infused with a refined horror sensibility that the Hollywood films extracted to great effect.

Artists creating the various editions' cover presentations have delivered magical compositions over the past two decades that capture the tone and sense of wonder contained in the pages, but nothing so dark and twisted as these macabre makeovers by concept artist and illustrator Dylan Pierpont.

Drawing on the supernatural nuances and psychological terror of the beloved saga's seven books, Pierpont has gone over the edge into a stirring realm of mysticism, madness, and occult mania.

Check out these provocative new Harry Potter book cover artworks for Harry Potter and the Sorcerer's Stone, Harry Potter and the Chamber of Secrets. Harry Potter and the Prisoner of Azkaban, Harry Potter and the Goblet of Fire, Harry Potter and the Order of the Phoenix, Harry Potter and the Half-Blood Prince, and Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows, then let us know which one you wish marked your walls.
