I don’t know if you guys have ever noticed, but these two book covers are actually pretty special.
At either side of the American covers, there are curtains. Book One and Book Seven are the only books with curtains on the cover. Think of it like a Broadway show. The curtains raise to begin the performance and close when it’s over. Whether this was intentional or not, it’s very fitting. Book One reveals a world new to all of us. We don’t know what’s on the other side, only that it’s full of adventure and magic and new friends waiting to be made. Book Seven’s curtains are there to signify the end of our journey. Everything has been solved and put to rest and the story is over (even though it’ll never really be over). The beginning and the end.
So whether or not this was intentional, which I bet it was, always pay close attention to book covers, as you never know what you may find.
