Harry Potter Hogwarts Stamps

Harry Potter, a magical concoction of the English writer J. K. Rowling, deeply loved by young folk around the world, Harry Potter has become an immensely popular figure of children's folklore and literature. Through these novels and movies, Harry Potter has been successfully marketed worldwide. To encourage younger generations to collect stamps, Chunghwa Post is issuing two souvenir sheets entitled "Magical Creatures" and "Hogwarts".

They are being timed to come out simultaneously with the release of the third Harry Potter movie "Harry Potter and the Prisoner of Azkaban" on June 4, 2004. Each of these sheets consists of six stamps. The stamps have been designed by Double Impact Licensing and Marketing Inc. and printed by China Color Printing Co., Ltd. in deep-etch offset.

The design of the "Hogwarts" stamps follows:

1. Quidditch Match (Upper Left):
In the storm, Harry rides his Nimbus 2000 in Gryffindor's match against Hufflepuff.

2. Dementors Come onto the Quidditch Pitch (Upper Right):

3. Riding a Hippogriff Together to Save Sirius Black (Middle Left):

4. Third Year at Hogwarts (Middle Right):
