The Deluxe Edition Cover Art for Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows'

was unveiled yesterday by US publisher Scholastic.

The art, by Mary GrandPré, who has illustrated all the American editions of the Harry Potter books, will be the wrap-around dust jacket for the book, inside a slip case.


The illustration shows Harry Potter, Hermione Granger and Ron Weasley, riding on a dragon.

According to the official Today show blog, this edition with a print run of 100,000 copies, will retail for $65 and contain 816 pages. Arthur Levine, US editor of the Harry Potter books, is noted in the article as saying that the Special Edition cover art is from one of his favorite scenes in the book, and was an image he specifically asked to be featured on the Deluxe cover.

Scholastic Vice President and Creative Director, David Saylor describes the scene as:

"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."
