Great Britain to issue Harry Potter stamps

Reuters U.K. reports the Royal Mail's Head of Special Stamps Julietta Edgar said seven first class stamps will be released in July honoring J.K Rowling's Harry Potter. The stamps will use artwork from the Bloomsbury editions of the seven Harry Potter books.

According to the report, "The bespectacled hero appears with an array of dragons, the Hogwarts Express train and his flying Ford Anglia. A five-stamp miniature sheet featuring the Hogwarts school crest and those of its four houses will also be available."

The stamps go on sale on July 17, four days before the publication of the seventh and final book: "Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows".
