Correction: Stamp Announcement 15-30: Summer Harvest Stamps

In the article “Stamp Announcement 15-30: Summer Harvest Stamps”, in Postal Bulletin 22417 (6-11-15, pages 31–32), the designer of the issuance listed is incorrect. The corrected information is shown in bold:

The U.S. Postal Service® celebrates some of America’s favorite summer foods — corn, tomatoes, cantaloupes, and watermelons — with four stunning new stamps. Vintage produce advertising, including 19th- and early 20th-century crate labels, seed packets, and catalogs, inspired the stamp art. The four stylized labels are all drawn in the same color palette of red, black, green, and yellow-orange. The names of the produce are in white lettering. Working with an early concept developed by former art director Richard Sheaff, Antonio Alcalá art directed these stamps. Michael Doret was the designer and artist.

Corrections (shown bold) have also been made in the technical details table following the article:
