Rounding out a series of reveals, Bloomsbury U.K. has unleashed the new cover for Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows Adult Edition.
The cover takes on a green and orange theme with Voldemort’s huge snake Nagini. The creature plays a pivotal role towards the end of the story as one of the Dark Lord’s Horcruxes.
Check it out below:
We’re surprised to see that Bloomsbury decided to go with Nagini, who is certainly not one of the major players or part of major scenes in the story line, even though she does have her time to shine (er, die).
All said and done, the U.K. publisher of the Harry Potter series opted to not use any humans on the covers. They used, in respective order, the Hogwarts Express, Hogwarts and the Whomping Willow, Buckbeak, the Hungarian Horntail, Harry’s Patronus and a Dementor, the Astronomy Tower, and finally Nagini.
We’ve rounded up all of the posters below so you can see what they look like as a complete set. Having seen physical copies and considering we’re attracted to the usage of vibrant colors (just look at Hypable!), we have to admit we really like this new set.

Note: These new covers are not to be confused with the new covers just published by Scholastic in the United States for children.
The new U.K. Adult covers will be released on September 26. The other five books are already on sale.
