Stamps featuring books

Posted on | March 2, 2011 | No Comments

Next week, The Royal Mail will be issuing a new set of stamps. Titled “Magical Realms“, the stamps feature various characters from myths and myth-like stories including the Narnia stories of CS Lewis, JK Rowling’s Harry Potter series and the Discworld of Sir Terry Pratchett.

First class stamps feature Dumbledore and Voldemort from the Harry Potter series and Rincewind and Nanny Ogg from the Discworld series. Stamps for overseas depict Merlin and Morgana le Fay from Arthurian legend and also Aslan and the White Witch from the Narnia series.

I love the Aslan stamp! Postcards with these images are also being released and can be ordered here.
