This is the same locket for which they crusade to
the cave and
find the fake horcrux. According to the book, the original locket was taken away
by R.A.B. who is speculated to be
Black. But now, it clearly specifies that the book is obviously about
horcruxes and that the locket is still to come in the light.
*Many of us including me had assumed that it has been successfully destroyed
by RAB but it isn't confirmed in the books so its something we have to wait
Next we come to Bloomsbury Children Edition
This cover is something i am extremely curious about. My first impression was
that this must be a 'not-so-important' event of the book. If you look back at
all the Uk bookcovers till now, they haven't been much revealing about the
story, *Harry in front of hogwarts express...In ford Anglia...on buckbeak...Hungarian
horntail...Phoenix pic...Fire Shielding from Inferi...* Of course they
are not negligible events, but they dont link directly to the story as
such, but American ones do (which I will discuss later).
Now, the startling thing I noticed is that if u zoom on Harry's right shoulder,
you can see an house elf holding Godric Gryffindor's sword. If your brain would have taken you to Chamber of Secrets, then its natural.
Given that, the sword and an house elf both occurred the first time in Book2,
the house elf is bound to be DOBBY.
" OH MY GOD! What on earth is Dobby doing holding Godric's Sword and with the
trio?" This was my reaction when I noticed it for the first time.
If we agree that this is Dobby, then it gives us multiple possibilities.
First of all, I guess the trio are in some adventure...and then Dobby comes to
rescue them or something. But one more thing that we can argue on is why a
treasure? Whose is it? Why is it there? Well, there can be a possibility that an
horcrux might be hidden inside Gringotts?
* Now, now. we have to let our imaginations run wild*
Stressing on the Treasure point, why do they look so utterly horrified in there?
I wont be terrorized by Gold. Will you?
Bloomsbury Back cover is up next
Hogwarts castle with light glowing at all rooms clearly tells us that the school
will re-open again!
The full moon shows clear relation with Remus Lupin or Greyback!
The side covers show Harry's Patronus and a crystal ball with possibly nagini
Well, the Half blood prince's side cover had the unbreakable vow so even this is
something important for sure!
(thanx to Navagat for pointing these out)
Now lets turn towards American Editions
This is the Hardback edition.
Spectacular isn't it? No i am not talking about the beauty of
the art, i am rther trying to focus on something invisible both Harry and
Voldemort are trying to reach.
But before that, lets try to visualise the background. Its no
wonder a face-to-face scene/duel between Harry and 'Dark-Lord' In some place
like a Colosseum (a fighting arcade).
And you cant help noticing the many many hooded figures in the background,
standing far away like audience. But then, there are also two curtains on either
side, may be just for the side in-covers.
This scene definately stresses on the face-to-face interaction between the hero
and the villain and mind you, this has to be an important part of the story,
like the previous book covers by Mary GrandPre *On Broom...coming out of
Chamber of secrets...on buckbeak...in triwizard tournament...in The circular
room in department of mysteries...*
Lets move to the very Recent Deluxe Cover
Now this is something very very revealing...
This Dragon reminds me of Hungarian horntail...what about you?
The three seem to be going somewhere...may be Godric's Hollow...
If you remember, at the end of half blood prince, we were told that the trio
will go to burrow and from there set out for godric's hollow which is supposedly
a village. Now, where can they get a hungarian horntail from? Does
come into your mind? Oh yes, he is a dragon keeper and ofcourse will be
attending Bill and Fleur's Wedding. So I guess the trio gets the Dragon somehow
The sunset is really picturesque and leaves us again with many
