Inhabiting a space usually reserved for dead royalty and placid nature scenes, boy wizard Harry Potter is being immortalized on a French postage stamp.

Warner Bros. Consumer Products in collaboration with the French postal service, La Poste, has announced a new Harry Potter stamp collection. The 10-stamp series is useable in France and costs approximately US$12 and features the famous boy wizard, his friend Ron Weasley and gal-pal Hermione Granger. The set went on sale throughout France this past weekend.

To coincide with the release of the stamps, La Poste is holding a contest that will reward the best drawing inspired by Hogwarts, Quidditch and everything Potter. The first-place prize is a trip to London, England while subsequent winners will receive HP merch.
