Bloomsbury have posted an electronic press kit on their site which contains video of Harry Potter author JK Rowling signing the first copy of Harry Potter and the Half-Blood Prince which will be delivered to the National Library of Scotland in Edinburgh on Saturday. The EPK also has video of illustrator Jason Cockcroft who comments that he hasn't even read Half-Blood Prince.
In advance of the publication launch at Edinburgh Castle on Saturday 16th July, Bloomsbury is releasing an EPK of JK Rowling signing the first copy of her new book Harry Potter and the Half-Blood Prince to be donated to the National Library of Scotland in Edinburgh. It will be delivered to the National Library on publication day, Saturday 16th July.
Jason Cockcroft, the British illustrator, reveals that he hasn’t read the new book but was commissioned to paint the dramatic front cover image of Dumbledore and a "more handsome, more dashing" Harry "with spiky rather than floppy hair" in a cave facing something "truly terrifying".
