The Scholastic Store hosted an exciting event to celebrate the unveiling of the new cover of Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows.  The Scholastic Store party was packed with Harry Potter fans of all ages, a welcoming Hagrid and live snakes, toads and owls. Hundreds of fans, many of whom were dressed as their favorite Harry Potter characters, joined in a host of fun activities including potion and wand-making and thrilled at the chance to be the first to see the new book trailer that will appear in theaters this summer. Fifty lucky fans received lithographs of the seventh book cover signed by Kibuishi.   

Following today's unveiling, Scholastic will release the seven back covers of the new paperback trade editions illustrated by Kazu Kibuishi, one each day from August 1 st through 7 th.  Each day at 9 a.m. (EDT or eastern time), fans can see the amazing new Harry Potter art at www.oomscholasticblog.com.

In each of the new cover illustrations, Kibuishi perfectly captures a pivotal moment from that particular book. For Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows, the illustration shows Harry, Ron and Hermione clinging to the back of a gigantic dragon, as they are carried ever closer to the pivotal battle which will determine the fate of the entire wizarding world. 

The artwork on the box set portrays a sweeping panorama of Hogsmeade, the picturesque village near Hogwarts School of Witchcraft and Wizardry. Harry, Ron, and Hermione, as well as Dumbledore and Hagrid, walk through town, past Honeydukes Sweetshop, and Zonko's Joke Shop. One special feature of the box set is the dramatic spine artwork which, as the volumes are placed in the order from one to seven, becomes a breathtaking view of Hogwarts at sunset. The entire box becomes an invitation to enter the enchanting world of the Harry Potter stories.
