Bloomsbury Updates with New “Deathly Hallows” Screensavers


May 24, 2007

Posted by SueTLC

Bloomsbury has updated their Harry Potter website with screensavers now featuring the covers to Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows. The Children’s edition screen saver features that mysterious symbol found on the spine of the jacket, then the castle and grounds from the back cover. The Adult cover screen saver starts out with the slogan “Seven Books One Story” then shows the various covers to all seven of the Harry Potter novels. Also, earlier the UK Potter publishers had updated with a new “Deathly Hallows” desktop countdown widget, but quite honestly this editor had trouble with the installation and can’t tell you for certain what is on this, so if anyone can get this to work, please let us know! To download all of these items, click here, then under downloads
On a related note, if you haven’t yet, be sure to check out that new Bloomsbury “Swot up on Potter” site we told you about yesterday as well.
Thanks Pablona!

Avatar Image says: First comment! Yay!Avatar Image says: I know this is off topic but can you guys at leaky put a direct download link on the leakymug set report podcast? and if that is somehow not possible, let us know. I said something to this effect on the newspost comments about that a few days ago but no one is responding to it. Avatar Image says: I use Windows XP and IE and had no problems downloading...but did have to click "run" twice. There are no "settings" to change, but was able to see a preview of the screensaver under the properties. It gives a magnified look all over the back cover and then goes to the front cover. Quite interesting.Avatar Image says: Verrrrrrrrrrrrry interesting screensavers. The snake thingy in the orb appears to be in the moon. I spy Prongs in the Forbidden forest. Also noticed that the triangle symbol is displayed in the circle/portal thingy that the trio are falling out/into on the kids cover. Maybe it's a symbol on a vault? Hmmm..... 57 days...Avatar Image says: there is SO MANY CLUES on the SUOP page! e.g. now we know that the picture on the UK DH cover really IS Hogwarts... Avatar Image says: *downloads immediately* :-DAvatar Image says: I agree with you IsItJustMe... it seems almost definent that the castle is hogwarts. Avatar Image says: **sigh** Guess I'm doomed not to have a desktop countown for this book. Love the children's edition screensaver. Prongs seems to be hidden in a portion of the tree line that just extends beyond the artwork on the back of the book. I can't even begin to speculate on whether this holds any plot significance. Sure is purty, tho. And now everytime I see that cloud formation, I think of Star Trek. **shakes fist as Martje**Avatar Image says: `by the way- you know how everyone thought that the castle on deathly hallows cover wasnt hogwarts? But it is, because you can see it from the window in the carriage on the Swot up on Potter site! there's your answer! Avatar Image says: The screensaver shows more of the castle than the cover does. It looks like the cover cropped out part of the picture. You can see the Great Lake and the tree that the Murauders sat under in Snape's worst memory.Avatar Imageghostflyer says: sweet
