What's your favourite HP cover?

Now that we've seen all 7 covers which one will go down as your all time fave?!
I think mine has to be the UK cover for OTP! I really love the image of the phoenix coming out of the flames!!


Although I do love them all

Re: What's your favourite HP cover??!

I like PoA (It's the UK edition I think)- I think that's really cool.

I also like DH US edition.
I don't like DH UK edition-I think it's too bright.
They're all pretty awesome though...

The DH US edition, definitely. Followed very closely by the HBP US edition.

Grandpre's style really changed between the 3rd and 4th books and I like the direction she took starting with Goblet of Fire.

I love HBP! It's an awesome green color and it's got both Harry and Dumbledore on it. It also has the Dark Mark.

Definetely the cover i like the most is DH ( US cover ), it is more realistic. IMO Harry looks much more better than the other covers.

Half-Blood Prince UK Cover. I think Dumbledore looks really powerful and he's protecting Harry with such force and determination across his face, which I think is a lovely image to have have.

Re: What's your favourite HP cover??!

My favorite is OotP cover (US)...It's the darkest and most intriging of the covers, at least to me...of course, the new DH (US) cover is pretty cool too. Grandpre's work is definetly my favorite, hands down, and how I actually imagine most of the characters.

Re: What's your favourite HP cover??!

mines the ootp!!!!!!! the design is soo simple and effective. the warmth of the colours give you a sense that the book is going to involve some sort of hope. the picture of the pheonix gives the feeling of calming emotions....so you know there is some hope left not that voldys returned...the book is good too..i still love the other books covers too......they get better as they go along....(uk editions)

Re: What's your favourite HP cover??!

My favorite is the US cover for DH. It's intriguing and really apt for what the last book is about--confrontation between the hero and the villain. I probably will try to get the US edition even though we get the UK edition here.

Re: What's your favourite HP cover??!

I'll also have to go with the US edition of Deathly Hallows. It is my favorite image of Harry so far and I can't wait for battles between Harry Potter and Lord Voldemort.

Re: What's your favourite HP cover??!

I actually like all of the US covers (though the Bloomsbury editions are more realistic[to me]).

I like all the US covers but my favorite is the cover for GoF. There's a lot put in it.

Re: What's your favourite HP cover??!

I like the DH one because it is so mysterious...we don't know what in the world is going on, but we do know it is a very interesting situation.

After that, I love the HPB deluxe edition because it is very pretty, all the details and stuff. I love how harry is depicted in the last two, also.

I agree with the DH and the Deluxe HBP cover. The cover of the OOP Deluxe edition is cool also, it has the outside of the Grimmauld Place building expanse with the Advanced Guard arriving on brooms. The inside binding has the original OOP cover. Mary GrandPre rules.

The early ones have a lot of information/characters on them, but the last 3 have a richness to them that seems to reflect the complexity of the books.

Re: What's your favourite HP cover??!

My favorite is the US POA cover, because, if you look very closely, all of the Marauder's are on it, and Sirius is on it twice. It's really cool, plus I love the book too.
