Description

As part of the celebration of the U.S. Government Printing Office's 150th anniversary on March 4, 2011, GPO has published a facsimile edition of 100 GPO Years, originally issued in 1961 on its 100th anniversary. 100 GPO Years takes a chronological approach to GPO history, beginning with a history of public printing in America prior to 1860 and describing events year by year from 1861 to 1961. A section of rare photographs illustrates the progress of "the big shop" from handset type to computer typesetting. This reprint edition includes an index, a new Foreword, and a new Colophon about both the original and new digital type fonts.
