Royal Mail Joins the Wizarding World
Royal Mail in partnership with Warner Bros. Discovery Global Consumer Products, today revealed images of 16 Special Stamps being issued to pay homage to the Harry Potter film series.
The main set of 10 stamps feature atmospheric images of characters – both good and evil – presented in the darker tone used for the later films, in which the Battle of Hogwarts reaches its climactic finale.
Each stamp has a secondary scene or character incorporated into the design and, in addition, the ‘1ST‘ font used for the value of the stamps replicates that of the iconic typeface used for the films.
Characters who feature on the stamps are: Ron Weasley, Fred and George Weasley, Professor Minerva McGonagall, Kingsley Shacklebolt, Harry Potter, Ginny Weasley, Neville Longbottom, Luna Lovegood, Hermione Granger, Molly Weasley, Bellatrix Lestrange, Narcissa Malfoy, Fenrir Greyback, Scabior, Lord Voldemort, a Death Eater, Severus Snape, Alecto Carrow, Draco Malfoy and Gregory Goyle.
A further six stamps, presented in a miniature sheet, feature illustrations of the fascinating creatures and beings of the wizarding world. From Aragog the Acromantula, to the beloved house-elf Dobby, the full set also includes Harry’s beloved owl Hedwig, Fawkes the phoenix, Buckbeak the hippogriff and Hermione’s cat Crookshanks.
