MacRumors reports that Apple has today announced that enhanced editions of all seven Harry Potter books by J.K. Rowling are now available exclusively via the iBooks Store worldwide for iPhone, iPad, iPod touch and Mac.
The exclusive enhanced editions feature the full original text, as well as interactive animations, gorgeous artwork, and annotations direct from J.K. Rowling herself.
You can also get exclusive custom covers for each of the books, as well as custom Harry Potter typefaces, as well as new section headers and drop caps.
The new editions are available now for $9.99 each in English in 32 countries, and pre-orders for other countries start today.
“I’m thrilled to see the Harry Potter books so beautifully realised on iBooks for the digital world; the artwork and animations in these enhanced editions bring the stories alive in a delightful new way,” said J.K. Rowling.
“Harry Potter fans are going to love how their favorite stories come to life,” said Tim Cook, Apple’s CEO. “J.K. Rowling’s legendary series is perfect for enjoying on your iPad or iPhone and we’re thrilled to offer them exclusively on the iBooks Store.”
This really is a massive deal for Apple, as previously Harry Potter digital books were only available via J.K. Rowling and Sony’s Pottermore shop.
