Scholastic releases DH deluxe edition cover!

No spoilers are allowed in these areas. Please make sure you've read our Deathly Hallows Conduct Notice!



Mugglenet just posted news that Scholastic have released the cover art for the delux american copy of DH, check it out.
I really like it, the Dragon seems oriental, perhaps it's a chinese Fireball?
Also if you notice the colour of the sky its the same, or near enough, of the colour of the sky in the other american cover.

What do you think?

I think that they're at Godric's Hollow, because a hollow can be defined as "A small valley between mountains" (dictionary.com).

Re: Scholastic release DH delux edition artwork!

My first guess is the trio are riding Norbert, as he was mentioned way back in PS but never heard from again but JK said we would see him again. Also, considering the landscape and where they sent Norbert off too, perhaps this takes place in Romania and where Charlie is with the dragon reserves.

Re: Scholastic release DH delux edition artwork!

My guess from this is that they all sruvive, considdering they look as if they are already returning from battle. Perhaps Harry is returning to Privet Drive?

Re: Scholastic release DH delux edition artwork!

Wow! I can't believe they are on a dragon. It looks like Hermione isn't too happy about it.
With all the other forms of magical transportation, what on earth would make them ride a dragon?

Re: Scholastic release DH delux edition artwork!

Ron and Hermione are wearing their cloaks, Harry doesn´t (he´s wearing something -er unusual). Might that mean that just Harry doesn´t return to Hogwarts? By the way it could also be an Ungarian Horntail, judging by the tail...

Re: Scholastic release DH delux edition artwork!

WOW! I love it so much! I really don't know what to conclude from this image...where could they be going? And why would they be travelling on a dragon?

This book is going to be so amazing!!

Re: Scholastic release DH delux edition artwork!

I'm lazy so thought I add the link to the News on Mugglenet.

MuggleNet.com Scholastic has released the cover art for the deluxe edition of the American Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows:

- Artwork
- Box

David Saylor, Vice President, Creative Director, Scholastic described the art: "Set during a highly dramatic sunset, Harry, Hermione, and Ron--clothes in tatters--cling atop a flying dragon in this astonishing artwork created by Mary GrandPré for the deluxe edition. As mist creeps down towering hillsides to a village below, questions arise about where the trio is headed and what has led them to this spellbinding moment."

The book will contain 816 pages compared to 784 pages in the regular edition and will cost $65; 100,000 copies are being printed.

Let the speculation continue! 42 days...

Re: Scholastic release DH delux edition artwork!

Norbert! My first thought was Norbert, like others. It does look vaguely oriental, but it has a ridge down it's spine, like a ridgeback should have(?).

I love the dragon...he's beautiful. I'm so excited!

Re: Scholastic release DH delux edition artwork!

Okay...here are my theories.

~ The Dragon, at first, appeared to me to be an Opal Eye Dragon, which we know is commonly found in NZ and Australia. Im guessing this, mainly because of the misty/whimsical eyes of this dragon. I will check my fantastic beasts though, just to make sure and double check the physical description of all the dragons and try and identify its breed.

~ The Dragon, could also (possibly) be Baby Norbert. The dragon does look a little lizardishy. Which we know are the main traits of a Norwegian ridgeback. HOWEVER: i will be checking my fantastic beasts first, before i go around saying what breed it is.

~ Again...on the dragon. WE KNOW DRAGONS CANNOT BE TAMED. So why are the trio riding one? how did they manage it without getting their heads sliced off or burnt? One possibility of this is that the Dragon is under the imperious curse, which would explain the misty eye look. (other than the dragon being an opaleye)

~ Another possibility is that this could be a dream. Probably of Harry's.

~ As for this scene taking place before or after the scene on the UK edition, i dont think so, as on the UK edition, Ron and Hermione are wearing coloured robes with a gold lining. Here, they are dressed in black.

~ I also dont think the location to be Hogsmeade, its just a feeling....but i dunno, those houses DO NOT seem to match the description of the hosmeade houses, which are often describe as cottages. (fit for a christmas card)

~ If the dragon is infact an opal eye, it does not neccessarily mean the trio are in NZ or Australia (where the Opal Eye is found) Remember charlie weasley works on a reserve for dragons...but then...they might be in NZ! (which would be extremely awesome!!) But, JK Rowling has insisted that there will be no new foreign characters...*sigh* theres goes my chance for a part in the 7th movie....

~ I dont doubt that is Ron, i dont think its malfoy at all. But again, its a feeling.

~ The characters might not neccessarily be coming from a battle. the tattererd robes could just be from long term wear and tear.

~ they might not be hogwarts uniforms either (what ron and hermione are wearing...robes that are black dont HAVE to hogwarts)

er..thats all i have right now!

Re: Scholastic release DH delux edition artwork!

How does one actually ride a dragon? From the depiction of Norbert in PS, and the first task in GOF, I take them to be pretty nasty beasts.

I am certain that Hagrid has had a hand in this.

It also looks like Hermione and Ron are looking more to the sky than anywhere else. Is there something up there worthy of their attention?

Re: Scholastic releases DH deluxe edition artwork!

There is no doubt that is Ron, in fact gertiekeddle just posted the new update which states firmly that that is Ron.
The peice does say however that the trio are clinging to the dragon. Perhaps they were flying brooms and jumped onto a Dragons back? Just an idea...

Re: Scholastic releases DH deluxe edition artwork!

OOOHHH!! I think there after the ravenclaw Horcrux (as she responds to air). I like the idea of it being Norbert. Hmmm, I wonder how they got on him in the first place! This looks SO cool!

Re: Scholastic releases DH deluxe edition artwork!

Why are there more pages? Is it just because the print is bigger?

Re: Scholastic releases DH deluxe edition artwork!

This looks great! I wonder what the location is. Seems like they're passing over a village. Harry seems to be in control of the dragon - I wonder if the dragon even realizes that it's got three people on its back. If it does, the Trio wouldn't even be on it. Perhaps it's tamed?
