Commemorative Harry Potter Stamps Go On Sale In Britain

LONDON (AP) -- Just in time for the final book's release this weekend, would-be witches and wizards can get their hands on special Harry Potter stamps being issued today in Britain.

A series of seven stamps, each one featuring a different Harry Potter book cover, is available from the Royal Mail. Another series of five smaller stamps has the crests from Hogwarts and each of the four houses at the school.

The Royal Mail says the stamps celebrate the seventh and final Harry Potter book, which will be launched Friday at midnight. The stamps have already broken a pre-order sales record set in January by a series of Beatles stamps.

They can only be used in the U-K, but they're available internationally on the Royal Mail's Web site. The set of seven costs 4.75 dollars and the set of five costs around 3.40.
