Harry Potter Cover Revealed, Looks Cartoonish

Just a short post – the new covers for Harry Potter and The Deathly Hallows has been released:

The children’s edition:

The adult edition (this sounds wrong):

As usual, the Bloomsbury cover trumps the Scholastic cover (this is me being biased – all my copies are from Bloomsbury) and I must say the web should be in a flurry of excitement soon, as the hype leading up to the very last book usually starts building up after the release of the covers.

I haven’t got the time to zoom in on each of the covers to see the summaries written, but here’s the source if you want to be embroiled in more Pottermania.

[Update on coverage]: BBC apparently asked members of the public about their opinion on the book 7 cover, and a lot of them complained about how ugly it is. Read it here.

    I don’t think Harry Potter books overall are nice to look at – certainly not with this portrayal of Hermione – urm, I mean Harry and Ron. They all look like they’ve come out of a Mad magazine feature.

    PS: And that is why Scholastic editions of Harry Potter rock!

    They do not. Call me a loyal Bloomsbury customer, but I am adamant that the Scholastic books look worse.

    After all, who can resist that pearly picture of deer?

    Oh you know why I like the children’s version more.

    But, don’t judge a book by it’s cover (art).

    It’s somewhat the same theory as how celebrities carry ugly chihuahuas around to make their face look better. This is done with cover art!

    Ahh. That’s … like saying I read Faulkner because it makes the rest of you look stupid.

    Hehe. Now that’s what I call psychology. :-)

    OK…Scholastic Editions of Harry Potter suck. I just had to spit that out. AND the regular versions of the cover are wonderful and unique in their own way. Just because you people don’t like the art doesnt’ mean you can ruin the pleasure of the book. If you dare critisize the poor art and end of telling everyone, there is no need for you to buy the book and waste your own time let alone everyone elses.
    Humph!
    Good Day to you!
