Ok...I am a little dense sometimes so, I have a question about the cover art for the entire Twilight Series by Stephenie Meyer. I know that there is significance behind each one as I have read that on her own official website and elsewhere. Each one sort of tells a little bit about the story inside but, I sort have not been able to figure it out. Can any of you help me? What was the symbolism behind the apple in the hands in Twilight, the red splashed feather in New Moon, the torn red ribbon in Eclipse and the white chess piece in the foreground with the red one in the background in Breaking Dawn? Does anyone else know the answer to this? There is one, I just haven't figured it out and, I haven't found it anywhere. I even tried to sort of dig into my own brain to try to figure it out on my own but, I really am sort of lost here. Help! Please! LOL!

Twilight: an apple handed from adam, a biblical reference, as in the temptation from edward. New moon: a withered tulip, which means that while edward is away she withers from the radiant flower she was when they were together. title means that it is the darkest point in her life, Eclipse: one side is jacob the other is edward, she is torn between the two, and the fact that the ribbon is not totally torn is that bella is not completely broken away from the idea of being human Breaking Dawn: The white chess piece is bella's new self (vampire) and the red chess piece is her human life fading in the background.

That's cool, i didn't know them either! Apart from i read in the special edition Breaking Dawn that the pawn and the queen represents Bella progressing from been a pawn to a queen, symbilically!
