A Reddit user by the name of AtlaKorra has created a growing compilation of Harry Potter Book Covers from around the world. From the United Kingdom to Sweden, Italy, and even Japan and China, the art is as varied as the languages.

The Italian covers have a bizarre whimsy to them, especially the cover for the first book which features Harry Potter playing chess with mouse while wearing a mouse hat. The Chinese covers all focus on one mythological creature or another, while the Ukrainian cover is dripping in bright, bold colors and images.

These Harry Potter book covers showcase a vast array of art styles that give each country its own unique vision of Harry Potter.
