Recycled Paper Required for Finnish Editions of "Deathly Hallows"

Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows

The New York Times is reporting the release of the Finnish editions of the final book in author J. K. Rowling’s series, “Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows,” printed on Finland paper has been blocked due to lacking ‘ecologically friendly certification’ standards of the particular paper used in the production of the book. It was the author’s wish, according to Tammi, the Finnish publishers of the novels, that paper be used which was ‘derived from wood grown and harvested in a way that promotes sustainable forest development.’ A spokeswoman from Tammi is quoted in the article explaining that, while the first Harry Potter novels were printed on recycled paper, “This time it’s a more specific demand.” Readers will remember prior to the book’s release in the States, US publisher Scholastic announced their commitment to print “Deathly Hallows” on Forest Stewardship Council (FSC) certified paper, the same paper Ms. Rowling wished the Finnish editions to be printed on, according to the article. Scholastic also recently reiterated their commitment to environmentally responsible publishing practices, with the continued use of FSC certified materials.

The Finnish publication of “Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows” is set for March 7.

Thanks Izzy!

Guess That Book

"Harry, you were brilliant!" Hermione said squeakily. There were fingernail marks on her face where she had been clutching it in fear. "You were amazing! You really were!"
