Royal Mail is celebrating the launch of the last book in the Harry Potter series by launching a series of stamps featuring the boy wizard. Images from the covers of JK Rowling’s seven Harry Potter books will appear on 1st class stamps, with the crest from Hogwarts school and its four houses appearing on a special set of five stamps. The stamps are being developed via a special licensing agreement with Warner Brothers and Bloomsbury. They are due to be launched on 17th July, four days before the seventh and final Harry potter book, “Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows” is due to go on sale in the U.K. The Royal Mail said it was "proud to commemorate and celebrate an illustrious British author and a true global publishing phenomenon".

Meanwhile JK Rowling is due to give a moonlight book signing to mark the publication of “Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows”. The author will be meeting eager Potter fans at London’s Natural History Museum on 21st July. The event is due to begin at midnight and will last until dawn.
