GPO launches blog
The Government Printing Office has launched a new blog called "Government Book Talk" at http://govbooktalk.wordpress.com/. The blog's goal is "to raise the profile of some of the best publications from the Federal Government, past and present. We’ll be reviewing new and popular publications, providing information about new publications in the offing, and talking about some out-of-print classics. The goal is to spotlight the amazing variety of Government publications and their impact on ourselves and our world – and have fun while doing it." The author of the blog is Jim Cameron, a long-time GPO employee. One of his first posts is about a pamphlet illustrated by Private Ted Geisel of the U.S. Army - better known to us as Dr. Seuss. The illustrated pamphlet is called “Meet Ann…She’s Dying to Meet You,” and is about the perils of contracting malaria from the Anopheles mosquito.
