Guess what we found on the street? That's right, a copy of Harry Potter and the Deathly Hollows! The most important book ever—for kids! There are some conspiracy theories out there that claim the Times' Michiko Kakutani bought a "wrong" or "fake" copy of the book, but having read through to the epilogue that ties everything up, it pretty much all jibes with her review. And what of that epilogue? Well, okay. But because there are some of you out there who are for some inexplicable reason fans of the childrens' book series, we will put it under the jump. DO NOT CLICK THROUGH IF YOU DON'T WANT TO KNOW HOW IT ENDS.
First, some visual evidence to prove that we do, in fact, have the book.
Now, are you really sure you want to know how it ends? Think long and hard. If you're positive, scroll down. And now! Here's the final passage of the final volume in the Harry Potter series:
This book was art directed by David Saylor. The art for both the jacket and the interior was created using pastels on toned printmaking paper. The text was set in 12-point Adobe Garamond, a typeface based on the sixteenth-century type designs of Claude Garamond, redrawn by Robert Slimbach in 1989. The book was typeset by Brad Walrod and was printed and bound by Quebecor World Fairfield in Fairfield, Pennsylvania. The Managing Editor was Karyn Browne; the Continuity Editor was Cheryl Klein; and the Manufacturing Director was Angela Biola.
