Post UK & US Deathly Hallows cover art revealed

Bloomsbury and Scholastic have unveiled the cover art for Deathly Hallows, the last book in the Harry Potter series.

Vote on your favorite cover here


Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows, U.S. edition (left), U.K. children's (right)


Deathly Hallows U.S. full version


Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows, U.K. adult edition

The UK covers (both kid and adult edition) can be seen at Bloomsbury.com. They include the blurb and the jacket sleeves. Further to that, Bloomsbury have also announced that the book will be 608 pages long.

The blurbs read;
Quote:
Harry is waiting in Privet Drive. The Order of the Phoenix is coming to escort him safely away without Voldemort and his supporters knowing - if they can. But what will Harry do then? How can he fulfil the momentous and seemingly impossible task that Professor Dumbledore has left him?
Quote:
Harry has been burdened with a dark, dangerous and seemingly impossible task: that of locating and destroying Voldemort's remaining Horcruxes. Never has Harry felt so alone, or faced a future so full of shadows. But Harry must somehow find within himself the strength to complete the task he has been given. He must leave the warmth, safety, and companionship of The Burrow and follow without fear or hesitation the inexorable path laid out for him...
Arthur Levine, the US editor, revealed the US cover art on the Today show. Watch the unveiling here.
Quote:
"We're seeing Harry in a very interesting situation. Readers will find out exactly what the situation is," said Levine, who admitted he cried as he read the book.
When asked about the possibility of Harry dying;

Quote:
Levine held his ground, saying only, "We do know that someone's going to die."
Quote:
"When I was reading it, I had both the excitement and the power of the book, and the plot, driving me forward. But I was also feeling a little sad. It's the last time."

When Levine admitted he "sobbed and sobbed" while reading the book, Vieira made a valiant-but-failed final effort to get Levine to disclose whether Harry Potter is finally done in by Lord Voldemort.

"That means someone we like dies, doesn't it?" Vieira prodded.

"Well, it means it is a very, very emotional book," Levine said.
Check out an interactive version of the U.S. cover at Scholastic.

I don't know why but the US cover looks like it maybe be at the ministry and the same veil Sirius fell through. We'll see, someone saying they sobbed reading it that's no surprise I sobbed at everyone starting with GOF.

Gah! The full (US) jacket can mean one of two things:

1) Harry and Voldie fight together for a time (they're not facing each other)

2) JK really wanted Voldie on the cover and made them even though he isn't "against" Harry at that time.

It also looks like there's curtains on either side. Another Veil that got Sirius? The Way out? It's actually a play? Gah. It looks like it's in a Roman Collosiem (sp?)

And we see the Slytherin Locket on the UK Adult version. Hmmmm.

I don't like the children's version this time. Ick.

I'm so excited. I've decided that after book seven comes out I'm going to make it my task to get all 14 UK releases and then dedicate a room of my house to them

The cover art for the adult UK version looks amazing.

Whoa, the US cover looks Amazing! I really am liking it, with Harry in a colloseum-type place... But it's kinda interesting as both him and Voldemort aren't facing each other, but something on the far right... I wonder what. Hmm... Maybe they're together, or watching something beyond the norm.

The UK Child cover looks, interesting? It kinda stands out as some kind of anime/manga thing, especially with their hair. I'll still be getting that one, but humm... I just find this one weird. But I've got to admit, I find the snake in a ball thing interesting... Something to do with the Death Eaters, maybe?


Quote:
Bloomsbury have also announced that the book will be 608 pages long.
*Cries* So that's a 176 page difference between UK and US. That's almost the whole of Philosopher's Stone.

I am so tempted to buy the US one now. I mean, how much stuff can they miss out? Unless one has the text printed at a larger font?

The US version is really cool. The UK one is ok too I s'pose. Oooh I hope I don't cry! I haven't cried yet but this one might just do it if he "sobbed and sobbed"

I really like the U.S. version. It's better than the Half Blood Prince cover imo.
