Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows cover pictures

The back and front covers of the last Harry Potter book, Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows, has been released by its US and UK publishers Scholastic and Bloomsbury, respectively.

According to news reports, the US publisher Scholastic have used Mary GrandPre, the illustrator of the earlier six US editions of the Harry Potter series, to design the cover.

The front cover features Harry standing with his arm outstretched against an orange-gold sky. Harry is surrounded by shadows of other people in what looks like a walled structure.

According to reports, the wrap-around cover shows spidery hands on the back cover that are outstretched towards Harry. On opening the book, one can see an image of He-who-must-not-be-named.

The UK publisher Bloomsbury has a children's cover featuring Harry, Ron, and Hermione looking troubled, surrounded by lots of treasure. The inside front flap features a stag at the bottom.

The adult cover has a locket shaped like a S, which could be Slytherin's locket.

Harry Potter will be released on July 21, 12.01 AM. The previous six Harry Potter books: Harry Potter and the Sorcerer's stone, Harry Potter and the Chamber of Secrets, Harry Potter and the Prisoner of Azkaban, Harry Potter and the Goblet of Fire, Harry Potter and the Order of the Phoenix, and Harry Potter and the Half-Blood Prince have been bestsellers.

Good Information. I saw some book covers recently. But I did not concentrate on them. But your blog made my attention on this. Children may be happy with that movie.
