Levi Pinfold

Levi Pinfold is the illustrator of the new Harry Potter 20th anniversary edition covers, which feature the crest for each Hogwarts house. To design the crests, Pinfold took inspiration from traditional heraldry and coats of arms, combined with typical characteristics that embody the values of each Hogwarts House. Pinfold’s picture books include The Django, Black Dog and Greenling. Black Dog won the prestigious CILIP Kate Greenaway Medal in 2013. He is also the illustrator of the children’s novel The Song from Somewhere Else, written by AF Harrold. Pinfold was born in the UK and now lives in northern NSW. He likes paintings, books, music, and some cats.
