Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows Covers Revealed

Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows New upcoming Books Covers Revealed

Scholastic and Bloomsbury, publishers of the wildly popular Harry Potter fantasy novel series, have both revealed the covers for the final tome in the saga, Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows.

Scholastic, publisher of the U.S. edition, once again enlisted artist Mary GrandPre to create their cover. The artwork appears to feature Harry and Lord Voldemort facing off in an arena-like setting against an orange-tinted sky. The hero and his nemesis are both seemingly focused on something out of view. Their body language suggests that they're trying to control something using magic, but neither are holding a wand.

UK publisher Bloomsbury is, as usual, releasing a children's cover and an adult cover. The grown-up version features a photograph of what we think is probably Salazar Slytherin's locket, one of the remaining horcruxes.

The cover of the UK kid edition shows the leading trio in a state of distress surrounded by a mountain of treasure. Could they be searching the depths of Gringott's bank for another horcrux?

Interestingly, the front and back insides of the book jacket feature a white stag, which readers will recognize as Harry Potter's patronus, and a large snake (Nagini?) inside a shimmering orb.
We'll all be able to connect the dots on all these things when Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows arrives on July 21.
