Here is a fun link I came across recently. It’s a Flash-based* cover art explorer for the U.S. justjacket art by the wonderfully talented Mary Grandpré. Just choose a cover — and this includes several de luxe edition covers I had never seen before — and then move the magnifier around to explore the details close-up. Pretty interesting. That’s a shot of Harry Potter and the Half-Blood Prince, zoomed in on Ron and Hermione, above.
And while I’m posting links, the same site offers a pronunciation guide as well, though not a complete one. Wondering how to pronounce some of those character names, incantations, and potions (e.g., Felix Felicis or Rufus Scrimgeour)? Check this guide for the “official” pronunciations — not that this will stop me continuing to use some of my own. :)
