Judging a book by its cover

by David Haber

We finally have images of the covers of the American and British versions of Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows, and if these covers are anything like previous Harry Potter book covers have been, these new covers potentially tell us a lot of what is going to happen in Book 7.

I do think Harry find that Godric's Hollow for one, is somewhere he has passed many many times. Perhaps on the train ride to Hogwarts. I'm reading the first one to see if they might casually mention him seeing a village but so far I haven't seen that. I think he find that most of the things he has to do to defeat Voldemort are right there in front of him, and have been the whole time. Irony ya know?

I was reading a comment on the first page and some one said that on the US version of the cover of the new book you can't see Harry's scar, but you can. If you just pull up the bigger picture you can see it. And we there most certainly be dementors in the last book.

I see Helga Hufflepuffs Cup next to the dragon helmet, not the bottle/jug, lower.

I think the dragon is dumbledore because remember, dumbledore was responsible for the uses of dragon blood...

notice on the u.s cover on harry's side the curtain is tied back but on voldemort's side the curtain isn't. I think this signifies that the curtain is going to close on voldemort, meaning his

Call me crazy but I think the dragon on the special editon cover is Norbert. Also, i think the curtains on the american version just show that the story is at an end, unless maybe they're beyond the veil....

The idea of Norbert is not crazy at all. However, I am puzzled as to how he could turn up just like that after 7 years... Hagrid, Charlie?

On the British children's cover, I think they are down (in Gringott's?) in a vault that belonged to Gryffindor. There is a helmet, and an armor. A Gryffin is carved on the helmet, and another magical beast on the armor (with a snake body and a bird beak). Rubies are specific to Gryffindor. The helmet is obviously another relic from Gryffindor, that Dumbledore and other people don't know.
That means that the knowledge about Gryffindor's relics is not perfect.

Then, we know from "wizard of the month" that the important relic really is the sword.

All three are looking for something. The goblin holds the sword coming from Dumbledore's office. Then, they are probably looking for the authentic Gryffindor's sword, while the one we know and see is a copy.

But Voldemort went there years before and stole the sword, which is now a Horcrux.

in the deluxe edition when they are on the dragon you can see ron and hermione with what appears to be school robes, however harry is wearing muggle clothes, but only hermiones clothes are damaged. what could this mean?

How do we know that the sword in the office is a copy? I mean wouldn't it be the real one because Harry is (possibly) a descendant of Godric Gryffindor? so wouldn't Harry be the only one to get the real thing from the Sorting Hat? It would be kind of like the prophecy, only people it applies to would be able to hold it/grab it...Just a thought!

Anyone reckon that the patronus/stag on the inside cover has any importance? Also, I reckon the dragon is possibly Dumbbledore, and the village below is actually Godric's Hollow. As for the arena, that's a tricky one. Still, only a few days to go.
