The Faroe Islands, a part of the Kingdom of Denmark, is very interesting place and language. Faroese is spoken only by about 75,000 - 80,000 people, which is about 20,000+/- of the Faroe Islands population. All 7 Harry Potter books were published by Bókadeild Føroya Lærarafelags, first in hardcover and as of now, I am aware of soft editions of books 1 and 2. Gunnar Hoydal translated books 1-3, Malan Háberg translated book 4, and Bergur Rasmussen translated books 5 - 7. Also, interestingly, there are Faroese audio books of all 7 Potter books as well. 

The hardcover book 1 is becoming quite hard to find, and a price to match. The last known public sale of a hardcover Faroese was in 2023 and sold for $750, which is quite high for a translation that is not considered a Big Six translation.

The hardcover Faroese books with the Mary GrandPre over art are made quite well, I think, and show off GrandPre's illustrations quite well. As well as MGP art, you can also buy a Faroese illustrated edition with Jim Kay's magical art.
