Last week, on April 19, 2013, the Bureau of Engraving and Printing (BEP) made available its 2013 Intaglio Print Subscription Program, "Ideals in Allegory."
This year’s commemorative program from the BEP is dedicated to the female allegorical figures symbolizing peace, justice, and liberty.
"This collection features an exquisite compilation of unique engraved allegorical vignettes focusing on the age-old art of intaglio printing," describes the Bureau of Engraving and Printing’s website.
