Avatar ImageMad But Happy says: I want the Deathly Hallows back cover as a poster, lol. Very nice :)Avatar ImageEeyore says: Nice to see, but I still prefer the original ones. Books 5, 6, and 7 by Mary Grandpre are my favorites. The new ones just feel very flat, to me. I also have to wonder what my reaction would have been if those particular scenes had been on the covers. I took great pains to avoid spoilers and the later Grandpre covers didn't give much away. Now that I've read the books many times, it doesn't matter and the new covers are a nice nod to certain important or favorite moments in the books. But I wouldn't have wanted that much information before I read them the first time.Avatar ImageWON_TWO says: I will always love the originals... The new SS one is quite good tho' I think.
