The American Library Association (ALA) has issued three new posters as part of its READ campaign, featuring Daniel Radcliffe (Harry Potter), Emma Watson (Hermione Granger) and Rupert Grint (Ron Weasley). Update: You can have a closer look at the posters right here in our galleries. The posters can be pre-ordered as a set for 15% off list price $40 and are only available at this price until the 15th of October. Pre-orders will begin fulfillment on the 18th of October, at which point all three posters will be available for individual sale.

The actors are pictured in previously unseen photos with their favourite books; Radcliffe is shown with Mikhail Bulgakov's The Master and Margarita, Watson with William Shakespeare's Romeo and Juliet and Grint with Anthony Burgess' A Clockwork Orange. The posters measure 22" x 34". Find more details and pre-order the set of posters at this link.

In related news, the ALA Graphics Facebook Fan Page is running a trivia contest to win the new posters, as well as the chance to win a "Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows" film poster, compliments of Warner Bros. Those interested should check the Facebook Page daily from now until the 15th of October--the first person to correctly answer to the trivia question each day wins!

Many thanks to the helpful librarian who goes by the name of Lovegood for emailing in!

The posters are great…but $40? That’s a bit much.

@taoist1, Alan Rickman is also on a Read poster. I have it in my classroom (and now I’ll have these three, too—just ordered). He is holding Catcher in the Rye in his poster.

I am so ordering!


Besides being good inspiration posters, it shows how much they’ve changed just since the end of filming. Rupert doesn’t look too different except for his hair, but Dan’s face is so much more filled out (it’s more so than any prior movie in the DH trailers, but even more now) and of course Emma’s drastic hair change. They almost should have put the actors’ favorite Potter book cover in the background, since two of them aren’t as recognizable!
