1st Edition translation of Harry Potter and the Philosopher's Stone, published by Gyldendal in 2000. The Danish translations have such interesting cover art, definitely more subdued than that of their Swedish neighbors. But I really like the Danish cover art all the same. At least in the US, the Danish books aren't too very common but they're also found on large e-commerce sites.

1st Edition translation of Harry Potter and the Chamber of Secrets, published by Gyldendal. Again, the cover art is quite different but lovely all the same. I really like the illustrator's take on the basilisk.

1st Edition Danish translation of Harry Potter and the Prisoner of Azkaban, published by Gyldendal. I love the unique cover art the Danish books feature. The colors aren't as vibrant as with the Bosnian books or the Swedish, but they're still quite elegant in their own subdued way. The Danish Azkaban books aren't too very hard to come buy, although I've seen more Azkaban for sale than I have Philosopher's Stone; that said, the Danish Potter translations are becoming more visible on the generally shopped e-commerce sites.
