The HBO drama fantasy series Game of Thrones is featured on two self-adhesive postage labels from Great Britain's Royal Mail.

These post & go labels were issued Jan. 23, the same time as Royal Mail’s Games of Throne postage stamps, souvenir sheet and booklets reported on the front page of the Jan. 22 Linn’s.

Robert Ball’s illustrations for the labels represent the complimentary themes of fire and ice.

Both labels feature the Iron throne, the contested throne in the series’ title.

On the label for first-class mail, fire-breathing dragons surround the throne. The ice creatures White Walkers appear on the label for second-class mail.

Royal Mail is offering the labels in a set of two with an information card giving an overview of the Game of Thrones television series and details about the stamps.
