Solo Post Office Puts Its Stamp on Harry Potter Mania
Solo. The postal service in Solo is putting its seal of approval on the latest and final installment of the Harry Potter series by reissuing a series of stamps bearing likenesses of characters from the films.
The stamps, which Solo postal authorities say can be used to ship mail anywhere in Indonesia, are available as four different sets of 12, and cost Rp 35,000 ($4.15) each.
However, it is unclear if the stamps have been officially licensed from Warner Bros., the film series’ production company.
The stamp sets – titled Forbidden Forest, Dumbledore’s Army, Dark Arts and Order of the Phoenix – take their names from aspects of the Harry Potter world, and feature pictures of the boy wizard, his fellow students, the grandfatherly Dumbledore and the evil Lord Valdemort.
Hanin Fathan Choiriyah, a spokeswoman with the Solo Postal Service, warned that supplies of the collectibles were in limited supply, with only 400 of the 12-stamp series in stock.
