Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows, UK edition.

Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows, UK edition, detail of snake in crystal ball.
Fanged snake in what appears to be a crystal ball or orb. Reflections in the glass appear to be either open doors or windows.

Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows, UK edition, detail of Hogwarts.
Nighttime (full moon!) scene with a storm of some sort rolling in from the left. There is a castle with tree consistent with depections of Hogwarts and the Whomping Willow, however the castle is either icy or silver, and the tree has no leaves. This is odd because the grass in front of the castle is green. All the windows are lit and a large doorway is open with warm yellow light shining through.

Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows, UK edition, detail of triangle.
Equilateral triangle that appears to be carved into marble. The triangle contains a circle; both are bisected vertically.

Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows, UK edition, detail of front.
Stone arch the frames the trio and quite a lot of treasure. Harry, Ron and Hermione seem to be either jumping through the arch or being sucked into it; Harry is almost completely horizontal. Harry has wounds showing through his torn clothing; Hermione also has wounds on her arms. On Harry's back is a small, pale creature with long fingernails and pointed ears holding a dagger with a ruby pommel.

The trio all seem to be having different reactions. Ron (wearing embroidered green robes) is focused off to the left and has his mouth open as if surprised or frightened. Hermione (wearing purple embroidered robes) is focused off to the right and seems to be screaming or shouting. Harry (wearing a plain black t-shirt or sweater) appears to be speaking, his hands are in a warding or conjuring gesture. His eyes are focused straight ahead and something bright is reflected in his glasses. Golden treasure is flying all around: coins, gemstones (all rubies), silvery armor (snake on front?), glass flagons or vials, plates, goblets, a ewer, a helmet with a dragon and rubies on it, and possibly a Celtic torc. No one is holding a wand.

Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows, UK edition, detail of stag patronus.
Silvery stag consistent with descriptions of Harry's Patronus. It is lifting its head up and almost looks like it is smiling.
