The set of eight stamps, which was released today, features wizards and enchanters from the legendary tales of King Arthur to the books of C.S. Lewis, Sir Terry Pratchett and J.K. Rowling.
“People across the U.K. have always enjoyed an epic tale of magical adventure, so we decided to bring together these classic stories, both ancient and modern, in one set of stamps,” says Philip Parker, Royal Mail stamps spokesperson. “Many of these tales involve more than one magical character, so we selected four different sets of stories, choosing two characters from each. The result is a beautiful set of stamps and a fitting tribute to these legends of literature.”
