Scholastic on Wednesday released both the front and back covers of the last Harry Potter book, Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows.
“The front cover of ‘Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows’ features a dramatic sky of oranges and golds. It depicts 17-year-old Harry with arm outstretched, reaching upward. The structures around Harry show evident destruction and in the shadows behind him, we see outlines of other people,” said David Saylor, Scholastic’s Vice President and Creative Director who has designed all seven Harry Potter covers.
“For the first time the cover is a wrap-around. On the back cover spidery hands are outstretched towards Harry. Only when the book is opened does one see a powerful image of He-Who-Must-Not-Be-Named, his glowing red eyes peering out from his hood.”
The covers follow below (click to enlarge). The first is the front, the second is the aforementioned wrap-around.
