The Belhoff replica:Research & printing took place January thru September 2009, as originally designed & printed by Mary Katharine Goddard, January 1777. "Setting the Declaration in type was enlightening in many ways, as my thoughts throughout the process were of Mary Katharine in her print shop during the cold month of January, not having 21st century amenities. I could not help but wonder how Mary Katharine must have felt being entrusted to print this stunning proclamation while setting each letter of the text 'all Men are created equal.' Therefore, on July 4th, 2010, I went to press on a second unambiguous edition proclaiming 'all People are created equal'," explained Mindy Belloff. "Mary Katharine was an incredibly brave woman for her time. By her actions, she was clearly a pioneer for women's rights and freedom of the press." (Mindy Belhoff).ConditionFine. Bright and clean.
