Bloomsbury is the publisher of the Harry Potter series in British English, and was the first publisher out of twelve to accept J. K. Rowling's books in 1997. They are also the publisher of the series in Australian and formerly Canadian English, along with Ancient Greek, Irish, Latin and Welsh.[1] The Australian books are distributed by Allen & Unwin and the Canadian ones by Raincoast Books until 2010.

Over the last decade it has grown a lot bigger, and Bloomsbury won the Publisher of the Year in 1999 and again in 2000, primarily because of the Harry Potter series.[citation needed]

Bloomsbury maintains an official website for the Harry Potter series.
