The U.S. Government Printing Office has produced a comic book to introduce youths to the world of printing. Titled Squeaks Discovers Type!, the comic highlights the importance of type from the beginnings of civilization to today’s world.
The comic was produced by GPO staff members Jim Cameron and Nick Crawford, who wrote and illustrated the book, respectively. The title character, Squeaks, is a “video game mouse who helps an elementary school student Jake discover the invention of printing and its evolution through the ages.”
The 24-page book is in full colour and available for $5 through the online GPO store. See a video below about the book’s launch.
