From Entertainment Weekly: "Cassandra Clare’s City of Bones — the first installment in her riveting Mortal Instruments series — turns 10 this year. To commemorate this milestone, City of Bones is getting a stunning new anniversary edition, packed with brand new content. EW can reveal both the 10th anniversary cover (a cloth-over-board jacket with text and art stamped in foil) as well as one of the six full-color character portraits that will appear in the new book. The book also features chapter header illustrations, black-and-white illustrations scattered throughout the book, and The Clave’s Confidential Files on our favorite characters, written by Clare herself. (top sekrit info on the characters, including birthdays, scars and major weaknesses 😉 Check out the cover and the back, printed with the iconic ALL THE STORIES ARE TRUE. The 10th anniversary edition of City of Bones will be out Nov. 7, 2017, but is available for pre-order now." Entertainment Weekly's story is up along with a portrait of Jace: Link in bio.
But wait, there is more (we’ve hightlighted the extras):
Celebrate the tenth anniversary of Cassandra Clare’s City of Bones with this gorgeous new edition, complete with special content and exclusive color illustrations.
The tenth anniversary of Cassandra Clare’s phenomenal City of Bones demands a luxe new edition. The pride of any fan’s collection, City of Bones now has new cover art, gilded edges, over thirty interior illustrations, and six new full-page color portraits of everyone’s favorite characters! This beautifully crafted collector’s item also includes four bonus stories that have previously only appeared in limited distribution, and—best of all—a new piece written by Cassandra Clare. A perfect gift for the Shadowhunter fan in your life.
This is the book where Clary Fray first discovered the Shadowhunters, a secret cadre of warriors dedicated to driving demons out of our world and back to their own. The book where she first met Jace Wayland, the best Shadowhunter of his generation. The book that started it all.
To get her fans even more excited for the anniversary edition, Cassie took to her Instagram to share two official, but not entirely accurate, Clave files of some of our favourite characters:

Some of the OFFICIAL CLAVE FILES contained in the TENTH ANNIVERSARY EDITION of City of Bones — on sale tomorrow! Along with Jace and Clary you'll find Clave files on Simon, Raphael, Valentine, Isabelle and many more. Swipe left to read Jace and Clary's files, written by Inquisitor Imogen Herondale. EDITED TO ADD: THESE FILES ARE MEANT TO HAVE BEEN WRITTEN BY IMOGEN HERONDALE AT THE END OF THE EVENTS OF CITY OF BONES. They reflect WHAT IS KNOWN AT THAT TIME. So yes, some of the information dates from that time, like Simon being a mundane, and Jace's birthday being incorrect. As for Clary having a star shaped scar ⭐️ we find out she has one in City of Bones, and why in City of Glass.
Did we mention that we’re so pumped for this new edition of City of Bones? 😀
