A sketch of the cover that was never used for the Harry Potter and the Prisoner of Azkaban book by Cliff Wright is scheduled to go on sale this weekend for £8,500. Mr. Wright, who had input from JK in reference to the image of the hippogriff, was somewhat disappointed that this version of the cover didn’t make publication.

According to the articleopens in new window :

The sketch shows Harry and his friend Hermione Granger on a hippogriff, a cross between a horse, lion and eagle. Mr. Wright said: "In some ways I prefer the sketch to what ended up on the cover. It's more dynamic: in the final version, the hippogriff is not moving quite so fast. JK Rowling herself faxed over an image of what she thought the hippogriff should look like."
