The main set of 10 stamps features 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 finale.
Each stamp has a secondary scene or character incorporated into the design, and the “1ST” font used for the value of the stamps replicates that of the films’ typeface.
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 Dobby, the house elf, the full set also includes Harry’s owl, Hedwig; Fawkes, the phoenix; Buckbeak the hippogriff and Hermione’s cat, Crookshanks.
“The Harry Potter stories and films have become a modern classic around the world,” says David Gold, director, external affairs and policy, Royal Mail. “For more than two decades, the characters in the Harry Potter series have captivated us and kept us enthralled. Each stamp is a miniature masterpiece, a fitting tribute to mark the climactic end to the Battle of Hogwarts.”
