Reviews

Rated 4 out of 5 stars on GoodReads.com!

Gabby rated it 5 out of 5 stars and said: “Quite a fascinating collection of photographs of the GPO.”

Bill Sleeman rated it 3 out of 5 stars and said: “An engaging and informative history of GPO. George Barnum and colleagues have done an excellent job mining the archives of GPO to assemble the story of printing and publishing for the government. Should be required reading for document librarians everywhere!”
