First Glimpse of the Harry Potter 7 Cover

The Guardian‘s Michelle Pauli has the inside scoop on what HARRY POTTER AND THE DEATHLY HALLOWS will look like from a cover standpoint:

The children’s cover for Bloomsbury in Britain is by Jason Cockroft, who illustrated the previous two books, and features Harry, Ron and Hermione leaping out of a circle of gold, surrounded by treasure. Harry himself looks almost unrecognisably grown-up – although the trademark specs remain – and all the intrepid cloak-clad trio look shocked and have cuts and bruises on their arms. The inside front cover features a stag, while the inside back cover has an illustration of a snake inside a silver orb. The adult edition cover pictures a locket, believed to belong to Slytherin.

Mary Grandpre will once again illustrate the US edition for Scholastic, where the jacket cover “shows Harry, arm outstretched, against a background of red and gold. The cover is a wraparound and, when opened, features an image of Voldemort’s glowing red eyes peering out from beneath his hood.”
