Today the boys had school so I was able to take my dad into Washington DC to do some sightseeing. We decided to head to the Bureau of Engraving and Printing and take the tour to see them print US currency. A lot of the process seemed familiar growing up watching my dad work on his own small presses and going with him a few times to some of the huge magazine and book printing places he’d worked at. It was still really cool to see the Bureau’s process and visit the gift shop where they have an old Intaglio press set up. I think my dad really enjoyed it. We also stopped into the American History Museum and the WWI memorial before we headed home for the day.
