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.

Awesome!! I kind of like the UK version better, but the I love the illustration of Harry on the US cover.
The covers aren't actually what I expected... I expected something more flashy and colorful or more gloomy.
I don't know. I would like to know Marie Grand Pre's (sp?) inspiration for the cover.

haha! hrmy_lvr_4evr spelled out my reaction exactly!

There's no difference between the two except the cover art. The cover art for the adult version is more mature.

In the U.S. Version doesn't it look like Harry is wearing a locket around his neck. It's not well defined but I think it might be Slytherin's locket.

Sorry if someone has already pointed this out.

No offense, but the British kids edition is...well...kinda funny? But what is that locket? Is this the same one everyone is talking about?

On the childrens version. There is obviously a house elf on Harry's back holding what we are assuming to be the sword of Godric Gryffindor.

Theory here:

We all know that Dobby will protect Harry at any cost pretty much and I was wondering what in the world is a house elf doing in the assumed final battle. Well I was thinking that he went to save the trio and the sword was actually a port key which transported them to somewhere unknown giving them the look of falling or lunging in mid air and to safety after Voldemort is defeated and the Deatheaters attack more vehemently for their slain master.

I don't know just my thoughts trying to figure out any way to see that Harry doesn't die. (I'm reading way to much into these covers aren't I?)

pardon me if this has already been stated before....
-for one if you look close enough there happens to be a locket or necklace around harry's neck
- Second of all this just is a theory of mine... could the room that they are in be the room in the DoM where the veil is located? There seems to be curtains at the bottom corners of the page? However it does seem to be located outside which defeats that threory

Whatever the matter is..i think that it is a very smart cover..very interesting especially the color and the scene depicted

well i love the covers thank goodness...they actually give me hope its a lighter colored cover considering how drak and excuse me depressing the other covers are which seem to foreshadow the book i am holding out for home and it looks like voldy is shrinking back in the picture...maybe? i hope so

as for characters who could die i think it could be many others besides harry since we like all the characters right?

I personally am telling myself that harry is going to die to prepare myself
if he does die i will know it (and still throw the book across the room) if not i will jump up and down scream and cry tears of happiness

The covers are great! I just love them!
However, I'm not that happy right now. I feel like I shouldn't read the book, but I should. (you know what that means, right?)
If the "somebody" does die, it's going to be like everything's over. Even when it isn't. I'm really depressed about that.
I hope everything will be okay, and everybody will feel okay, when everybody reads the final of the final book, Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows.

God I cant wait for this book any longer. Is it me or doest the US version make it look like Voldemort and Harry seem to be working with each other? Or they could be summoning something. I don't really get the childrens UK version, if this is suppose to be an emotional book, why does it look so comedic?
