Harry Potter Stamps 25 November 2004

Harry Potter and his Hogwarts friends will soon be making their official premiere on postage stamps with worldwide rights. The famous boy wizard and his cohorts will soon be appearing on a new series of postage stamps being released on Tuesday 7th December 2004 by Isle of Man Post.

Coinciding with the DVD release of Harry Potter and the Prisoner of AzkabanTM, these official postage stamps have been approved by Her Majesty The Queen and Warner Bros. Entertainment and are to be made available for fans and collectors worldwide.

The colourful set of eight postage stamps will feature scenes from Harry Potter and the Prisoner of AzkabanTM. Included are images of Harry Potter, his friends Ron Weasley and Hermione Granger, plus Hagrid, the Hogwarts gamekeeper. Also prominent will be the Owl Post, the method by which mail is delivered to wizards in the world of Harry Potter.

Dot Tilbury, Manager of the IOM Philatelic Bureau, said:

"The Harry Potter phenomenon has captured the imaginations of children and adults of all ages, the world over. With this thrilling new postal series, we hope to create a whole new generation of stamp collectors and letter writers."

The complete stamp series can be viewed or purchased on the Isle of Man Post website: www.iomstamps.com/harrypotter
