The Library of Congress on Sunday night pulled a page on its online store for an official portrait celebrating Donald Trump’s inauguration as the 45th president of the United States. The move came after eagle-eyed critics pointed out a glaring typo.
“No dream is too big, no challenge is to great. Nothing we want for the future is beyond our reach,” the quote read on the poster, which appeared on the Library of Congress’ online shopping page but was disabled Sunday night.
According to the original page, “the print captures the essence of Donald Trump’s campaign for the presidency.”
The web page selling the poster — for $16.95 — was taken offline between around 10 p.m. ET, according to The Hill.
On Monday, reps for the Library of Congress insisted that the spelling mistake only appeared on “the promotional image” but “the poster itself does not contain the error.”
In a statement, the publicity team added, “The Library regrets that its staff did not catch the error in the marketing materials for the poster, which were provided by the third-party vendor that created the product.”
The Library also acknowledged that some buyers may have been motivated by the error — and offered a preemptive refund if that’s the case. “Individuals who ordered the item based on the incorrect marketing materials may cancel their orders,” it said.
Social media leapt into the action to point out the misspelling of the second “to.”
