    Can you guys make that great graphic (the one with the book jackets that says “NOW AVAILABLE”) into a high-res image for us so we can print it out and make flyers out of it? Please? Thank you!

      Hi Julie- We’re developing a kit of Pottermore-approved artwork (bookmarks, flyers, etc.) that you’ll be able to access through our Marketing & Outreach team. Stay tuned! Best, Mike
