Any self-respecting Game of Thrones aficionado will be foaming at the month with this little piece of merchandise from the highly acclaimed series. HBO has teamed up with the Royal Mail to release a set of fifteen 1st Class stamps to mark the significant British contribution to the production of the series.
The set of stamps will be available from the 23rd of January 2018 via Royal Mail and their 7,000 branches of the Post Office around the UK and will depict photographic representations of central characters from across all seven seasons in the Game of Thrones’ series. Each stamp is centred on an individual character and features a montage of images from the series. The result is a set of ten bespoke images that embody the crux of each character’s story.

The remaining five will be made up of a sheet of five stamps featuring the non-human characters in the series including the Night King and White Walkers; Giants; Direwolves; Dragons and the Iron Throne itself.
The specially created stamps are a fitting tribute to the series, which will be coming to its end after season eight, and its British Roots.
