The Bulgarian language as it exists today has undergone quite a lot of transformation throughout its history. Bulgarian is a Slavic language, is mostly closely related to Macedonian, both of those languages differ quite a bit grammatically from the other Slavic languages. Like English, there is an Old Bulgarian (9th - 11th centuries), Middle Bulgarian (12th - 16th centuries), and Modern Bulgarian (16th century - present). The Modern Bulgarian written language has originations in the 16th Century religious writings, did not fully standardize until the 19th century.

The Bulgarian Harry Potter books were published by Egmont Bulgaria in both soft and hard covers. The books were first published using Mary GrandPre's illustrations from the US books. Then in 2014, they were released with the Jonny Duddle illustrations. Up until earlier November 2019, Bulgaria did not offer original cover art; HOWEVER, in honor of their 20 years of Potter, they released BEAUTIFUL Potter books with their own unique art!

In 2017, the Bulgarian books were published using the Jonny Duddle art. As I own so many books with this cover art, I don't see the need to finish the rest of this set, unless there's something linguistically interesting, and as of now, I'm not aware of anything. Like the first editions, this set are published by Egmont Bulgaria.

In 2019, Egmont Bulgaria released the 20th Anniversary editions, featuring Bulgarian illustrator, Lyuben Zidarov. Personally, I really enjoy these covers.
