Harry Potter and the Book of Stamps

Starting November 19, the U.S. Postal Service is offering a magical opportunity to dress up your holiday cards, correspondence, and acceptance letters from Hogwarts with a collector’s booklet of 20 First-Class Forever Harry Potter stamps.

The stamps will feature 20 different photographs from all eight Harry Potter movies, including our favorite wizards like Harry, Ron, and Hermione; their classmates and professors; magical creatures like Hedwig and Fawkes the phoenix; and even villains like Voldemort and Bellatrix Lestrange. Nothing says jolly like Bellatrix Lestrange on your Christmas cards!

If you have Potterhead philatelists to shop for this holiday season (and who doesn’t), the USPS has you covered. The USPS web site is currently taking pre-orders for the collection, or you can head to the closest post office on Tuesday to get your Muggle mitts on the stamps.
