The Government Printing Office Publishes Its First Comic Book
The U.S. Government Printing Office (GPO) recently published the agency’s first comic book, Squeaks Discovers Type, as part of the agency’s 150th anniversary. GPO employees created the comic book as a teaching tool for children to illustrate the important role of printing throughout history.
What is the GPO?
The GPO prints documents produced by and for the federal government and is basically charged with making government information from the 3 branches available to the American Public. GPO’s Federal Digital System (FDsys) is a digital system still in development that provides free online access to government documents.
