link: The apple represents "forbidden fruit." It coincides with the scripture from Genesis at the very beginning "the matunda of the knowledge of good and evil." Because isn't this exactly what Bella ends up with? A working knowledge of what good is, and what evil is. Stephenie says she loves the beautiful simplicity of the apple and what it says to her: choice.
link: The publishers chose it. As far as we, and Stephenie know, it has no meaning beyond looking pretty.
Eclipse: I don't believe Stephenie has actually stated anywhere what this one means. But the ones I've heard the most are: one end symbolizing Edward, the other end symbolizing Jacob. Each end representing her two choices of upendo au the person she can choose to stay with.
Number two of Eclipse: One end symbolizing the vampire world, the other the human world. Bella's choice between the two. The lone still-connected string Bella's tie to her human life.
link: The chess pieces are a metaphor for Bella's progression throughout the entire saga. She began as the weakest (at least physically, when compared to Wanyonya damu and werewolves) player on the board: the pawn. She ended as the strongest: the queen.
Well on the cover of Twilight the apple in the hands represents the "Forbidden fruit"From the bible tale Adam and Eve. In New Moon I think the wilting maua, ua represents Bella's broken heart. au it could onyesha the with rose turning red and dripping Bella's blood from her horrid birthday party. In Eclipse The torn ribbon is Bella's torn moyo between Edward and Jacob. And finally in Breaking Dawn the cover shows Bella moving from simple pawn to Queen, of her new role.
i only know what 'breaking dawns' cover means, alittle. wewe know the chess pieces. there's a red one in the back and i think it represents Nessie and the white one in the front represents Bella. And the board represents the steps she has to take in the book and the hardships. it just a theory really. i'm not completly sure about the others. good swali though. should have some interesting answers! :)
the twilight cover picture is the only one im completely sure of: it's the "forbidden fruit" like in the story of adam and eve, there's the matunda of temptation but they cant have it. i've heard several suggestions for the others and i have a few of my own. i heard that the picture on the new moon cover stands for bella's weakness. the eclipse cover is rumored to represent the two sides of bella, edward and jacob. my reasoning for the breaking dawn cover is that the smaller red piece stands for the weaker, human bella (red for the color of blood). and the larger white piece for the new, stronger, less fragile bella (white, to represent the "bloodless" new body of bella). sorry i cant give wewe any further infomation, but im sure someone can help wewe out(:
There is also another element to the twilight cover. In the film there is an obvious shot where edward catches bella's fallen red apple and presents it to her with both hands, like on the book cover. It seems quite symbolic of him offering her the choice between a Wanyonya damu life and a human life kwa accepting the apple.
These r my opinions Twilight the whole u cant have an apple without the core to the core is Bella in edwards eyes NM when edward leaves Bella it crushs her Eclipse the ribbion from the present Jake gives to Bella BD they had to think one step ahead to win au finish the way it sounds it should like chess the way of winning
Twilight: the apple represents the forbbiden fruit. New moon: the falling tulip means Bellas life crashing down Eclipse: the ripped ribbon is bella's choice between jacob and edward. Breaking Dawn: the chess pice is like how bella started out a pawn, the weakest player and now shes the queen, the strongest player.
Twilight -- The apple on the cover of Twilight represents the knowledge of good and evil. Eve ate this forbidden matunda in Genesis, and Twilight has an epigraph from this book of the Bible: "But of the mti of the knowledge of good and evil, thou shalt not eat of it: for in the siku that thou eatest thereof thou shalt surely die." The swali inherent in the apple is "Do wewe want to know?" It asks if wewe are going to bite in and discover the frightening possibilities around wewe au refuse and stay salama in the comfortable world wewe know.
New Moon -- Unlike the other covers, Stephenie was not involved in choosing the cover for New Moon. The mwandishi originally proposed a clock image, as time is such a key theme in the book. But ultimately the team that chose the tulip focused on the theme of loss. The image of the maua, ua losing its petal was chosen to reflect that. They felt the fallen petal could also be interpreted to represent the drop of blood from Bella's paper cut in the first chapter.
Eclipse -- The not-quite-broken ribbon on the cover of Eclipse is a metaphor for Bella trying to leave her human life behind her, but being unable to make a clean break. There are some threads she is unable to cut - she can't completely divorce herself from her past.
Breaking Dawn -- The two chess pieces on the cover of Breaking Dawn both represent Bella. They onyesha her moving from the least significant player, the pawn, at the beginning of the Saga to the most important player, the queen, at the end of the series. The chessboard also hints at Breaking Dawn's resolution, where the battle with the Volturi is one of wits and strategy, not physical violence.

Twilight=apple forbidden fruit, like Edward and Bella's love New Moon=relationships dying and growing back together with new petals Eclipse=the 2 sides of the ribbon are Edward and Jacob and the relationships with Bella are breaking but she is holding on to them both. Breaking Dawn=the pawn represents Bella as a human (the weakest player) while the Queen is her as a vampire(now the strongest player)
