An art director and design manager of many philatelic issues, he also served for two terms on the Stamp Advisory Committee, responsible for subject programming and design selection. This illustrated slide talk will look behind the scenes at stamp's progress from Subject research through design concept selection to the preparation of final digital files for stamp printing. Physical samples of stamps and related collector collateral will also be available to view.
