Stamp collectors and Harry Potter fans are becoming a Venn diagram of mutual appreciation since Royal Mail have commissioned this exclusive new design!
The Westminster Collection, who have produced some fantastic literary designs in the past, bring us these brand-new Harry Potter inspired stamps, officially postmarked by the Royal Mail. Each collector receives one of the 4,995 exclusive sets of 15 individually designed stamps- all set in a simple frame.
Our favourite Harry Potter characters from the movie adaptation adorn the stamps- from Harry and his friends to Professors Sprout, Snape, and Trelawney, among others.

Thanks to educator Terrance Sims, the class were able to accurately recreate some of the most iconic book covers and pay homage to Black voices. Sims ensures each Black History Month is marked by creating a project meant to highlight the talent, strength, and importance of Black leaders, artists, and culture.
This year’s project was inspired by the class’s book club who came up with the idea, and Sims gave it the title ‘Representation is Key’. The recreations (below) are really well done, and the pride the kids feel in themselves and the Black icons, is clear. Read More
