1776 irony


With my string of reading lately dealing with government I believe a book by David McCullough is now on my radar.

In passing I saw the book "1776" in a special edition format. The newly illustrated version of the book was in a collectors case. The case felt similar to a hardback cover of a book and it was decorated with powerful American imagery.

What was so ironic about it?

As I attempted to get a grasp of this book by reading everything written on the sleeve and back I noticed in small gold font across the bottom "cover printed in China". How fitting. A book written to sensationalize the power of our independence wasn't able to make it to a printer in the United States of America.
