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 am both happy and sad, in the same time :S I'm looking forward this one, but this will be the last anyway, the covers are telling a story: Harry and Voldemort will (naturally and eventually) fight and Harry will have a new power, maybe Dumbledore is helping him from the sky. Ron and Hermione will help Harry for searching Horcruxes, and this trio will find Voldemort's treasure. And the last remaining Horcrux will be the Slytherin medallion.

It looks as if Harry and Voldy are either fighting the same thing or grabbing for the same thing. And I was thinking that maybe since it's called "Deathly Hallows" that its refering to the veil, because the veil is where all the dead people go, right? And possibly the that curtain in the US version is the veil, and this is how Harry keeps in contact with like Dumbledore and Sirius.

I know everyone is going to think I’m really stupid for not having realized this before when everyone else obviously has , but I thought the other thing on the cover with Harry was a deathly hollow not Lord Voldemort.

well I am going to hate not having another harry potter book to look forward to!!!. I admit honestly, I never cried at the books, I just got really friggin ****** off at rowlings for killing my first and second favorite characts. I know I may sound weird, but dumbledore was my favorite character. I loved dumbledore more than harry. my second favorite was sirius. I guess I have harrys perspective. I can see what harry saw in dumbledore. his wise saying and his knowledge made him feel like a great mighty wizard he was. yes, It sounds crazy, but harry wasnt my favvie. and the US version is really cool, but If that is the locket on the adult version, I honestly expected a better design than that!!!!!. If harry dies, I will kill rowlings.J/k. but I will be sooo ****** that people wull flinch and thnk im going to throw the dang book at them.lol

In my opinion, it looks like he-who-must-not-be-named is holding his hand out like he was saying stop rather than reaching for something. Maybe something is comming at him and he's holding his hand out to stop it or whatever. As for the matter of the shadows in the background, I believe the to be either part of the order, OR maybe deatheaters, OR Dead souls from behind the curtain.
I dont know, but forsome reason why the orange sky makes me think of Phawks. (OMg i am so sorry I spelled it wrong). I am a bit confused about the thing around harry's neck, but by looking at the cover of the adult version it appears to be the locket of salazar, so I am led to believe that harry has one of H-W-M-N-B-N's horcruxes around his neck. Maybe he found that it rotects him, because maybe to kill Harry, He-who-must-not-be-named would have to destroy one of his Horcruxes. But then I think, that shouldn't be a problem for him because if he should succeed at killing Harry he could just make more, unless that one is somehow more powerful. Of course I could be taking this in a different direction. I mean it might not even be the locket. (But if it is, maybe it gives harry more power that he will need to defeat HIM.

I just realized. My mistake, upon taking a closer look at the book cover I realized that the thing around harry's neck is a little bag holding something, It isn't a locket at all. But what could the bag be holding? Well it has to be something Magial of course, but we dont know if it will aid harry in fighting. If they are behind the curtain then maybe it helped harry get through without dying, I am really confused...

I'm not sure I like Bloomsbury's children's edition, but the adult and the Scholastic editions are great!

It is very sad, the fact that it is the last book. I trully enjoyed this series and would have had it that Ms. Rowling should never tire of her wonderful characters (though she has said that she had always intended to write only 7 books). They are trully great and that "I wonder what happens next" will be trully missed.
