The Mortal Instruments Books Receive New UK Covers!

It’s been the week for news regarding The Mortal Instruments series! First we had the news regarding the upcoming TV series and now UK fans can collect snazzy new book covers!

Walker Books is pleased to make available the brand new UK edition covers for The Mortal Instruments book series, written by Cassandra Clare.

Each of the six titles in the series has new cover illustrations, designed by Mila Furstova, the artist who created the album artwork for Coldplay’s ‘Ghost Stories’.

The new covers will be on sale from July 2015, when Walker Books UK will publish a major re-issue programme of New York Times No.1 bestselling The Mortal Instruments Series by Cassandra Clare to attract a whole new audience as well as being a collectable for existing fans.

The first book in the Mortal Instruments series, City of Bones, was a major movie release in 2013. Irresistibly drawn towards a group of demon hunters, Clary encounters the dark side of New York City – and the dangers of forbidden love. The Shadowhunter Chronicles span several series: The Mortal Instruments, The Infernal Devices, Tales from the Shadowhunter Academy, The Bane Chronicles and The Shadowhunter’s Codex.
There are more than 35 million copies of Cassandra Clare’s books in print worldwide. Rights have been sold in over 30 countries, and the books have appeared on bestseller lists all over the world.


To resolve any confusion fans had regarding the new covers and previous covers, author Cassie Clare lent a helping hand.

Lots of people asked about the new designs for the covers of TMI in the UK/Australia/NZ/Ireland. Now, these covers aren’t going to replace the existing covers. The existing covers will still be sold. These will be sold also, either in the teen or adult section. They simply give an alternate look.

These are some of my favorite covers I’ve ever had. These are etchings done by artist Mila Fürstová. Within each shape, you can see careful details: Clary and Jace separated on City of Bones, together in City of Heavenly Fire, Alicante in the rose on City of Glass.

Furstova also did the cover for Coldplay’s Ghost Stories, which I love!

These are delicate and ethereal and lovely — very different from other covers I’ve had. I love the range!


We think these new covers are gorgeous and can’t wait to add them to our bookshelves! Which one do you like best?
